This module provides automatic methods which wrap perl's built-in
functions for minipulating numbers, strings, arrays, hashes, and code
references. It can be handy to use built-in functions as methods to avoid
messy dereferencing syntaxes and parentheses pile ups.
autobox::Core is what you'd call a stub module. It is merely glue, presenting
existing functions with a new interface. Most of the methods read like sub
hex ($) { hex($_[0]) }. Besides built-ins that operate on hashes, arrays,
scalars, and code references, some Perl 6-ish things were thrown in, and some
keywords like foreach have been turned into methods.
