Log Message:
Note initial addition of p5-autobox version 2.55 as devel/p5-autobox
into The NetBSD Packages Collection.

The Perl 5 module autobox provides an autobox pragma.  It allows
methods to be called on integers, floats, strings, arrays, hashes,
and code references in exactly the same manner as blessed references.
The autoboxing is transparent: boxed values are not blessed into
their (user-defined) implementation class (unless the method elects
to bestow such a blessing) - they simply use its methods as though
they are.  The classes (packages) into which the native types are
boxed are fully configurable. By default, a method invoked on a
non-object is assumed to be defined in a class whose name corresponds
to the ref() type of that value - or SCALAR if the value is a
non-reference.  This mapping can be overriden by passing key/value
pairs to the use autobox statement, in which the keys represent
native types, and the values their associated classes
