NAME

EPrints::BackCompatibility - Provide compatibility for older versions of the API.

DESCRIPTION

A number of EPrints packages have been moved or renamed. This module provides stub versions of these packages under there old names so that existing code will require few or no changes.

It also sets a flag in PERL to think the packages have been loaded from their original locations. This causes calls such as:

use EPrints::Document;
 

to do nothing as they know the module is already loaded.
