META::constants - distribution related constants from META info
use META::constants $?DISTRIBUTION; say NAME; say DESCRIPTION; say VERSION; say AUTH; say AUTHORS; say SOURCE-URL; say CREDITS;
META::constants provides an easy way to access information in a module's META information. It is intended to be called inside the code of a module only, although anything that provides a
.meta method, can be used.
NAME - the "name" field
DESCRIPTION - the "description" field
VERSION - the "version" field as a Version object
AUTH - the "auth" field
AUTHORS - the "authors" field, joined by ', '
SOURCE-URL - the "source-url" field with ".git" removed
CREDITS - a credit text created from above
META - the meta information hash itself
