NAME
       SVN::Base - Base	class for importing symbols for	svn modules

SYNOPSIS
	   # Load the svn_ra_* functions into the SVN::Ra namespace.
	   package SVN::Ra;
	   use SVN::Base qw(Ra svn_ra_);

	   # Load svn_config_t structure accessors in the magic	namcespace
	   # provided by swig, so we could use it returned by other functions
	   package _p_svn_config_t;
	   use SVN::Base qw(Core svn_config_);

DESCRIPTION
       SVN::Base is a module importing the subversion perl bindings raw
       symbols created by swig,	into proper namespace and make them easier to
       use.

       It will also find the accessors for members of a	C struct, create an
       simpler accessor	function like "$data->field()" and
       "$data->field($new_value)".

       Once you	understand the convention of subversion	functions in perl
       bindings, you could look	at the subversion api and write	them in	perl.
       The API is available in the source header files or online at
       http://svn.collab.net/svn-doxygen/.

INTERNALS
       The perl	bindings of swig wraps raw functions into different perl
       modules,	for example, SVN::_Core, SVN::_Repos. Upon import, SVN::Base
       bootstrap the requested module if it's not yet loaded, and iterate over
       the symbols provided in that module, it them puts the function with
       prefix trimmed in the namespace of the caller for this import.

       The 3rd through the last	parameter is a list of symbol endings that you
       wish for	SVN::Base not to import	into your namespace.  This is useful
       for cases where you may want to import certain symbols differently than
       normally.

CAVEATS
       SVN::Base consider a function as	structure member accessor if it	is
       postfixed ``_get'' or ``_set''. Real functions with this	postfixes will
       need extra handling.
