Perl module that performs aliasing services

Alias is a perl module that performs aliasing services. It is useful for those of you that are tired of dereferencing hash-based object attributes, or wish perl could make-do with fewer $, -> and things, or are a little scared of using typeglobs, or want the freedom to put what you want, when you want in the symbol table without having to deal with weird syntax, or need to use scalar constants in your program since you don’t trust yourself from changing $PI heh. Most notably, there is a C function that installs a whole hash on the symbol table with implicit localization. This allows you to access object attributes without having to deref the object every time, as in most other OO languages.
