autobox is a Perl pragma that enables method calls on Perl's native data types including numeric values (integers and floats), strings, arrays, hashes and even code references in a simple and consistent way.
When a method is invoked on something which is not a blessed object reference, autobox looks for the method in a package whose name corresponds to the ref() type of the value. This design means extending the default functionality for new methods on a type-by-type basis is very simple.
