libtie-array-iterable-perl 0.03-2 (ppc64el binary) in ubuntu eoan

 Tie::Hash::Iterable allows one to create iterators for lists and arrays. The
 concept of iterators is borrowed from the C++ STL [1], in which most of the
 collections have iterators, though this class does not attempt to fully mimic
 it.
 .
 Typically, in C/C++ or Perl, the 'easy' way to visit each item on a list is
 to use a counter, and then a for( ;; ) loop. However, this requires knowledge
 on how long the array is to know when to end. In addition, if items are
 removed or inserted into the array during the loop, then the counter will be
 incorrect on the next run through the loop, and will cause problems.
 .
 While some aspects of this are fixed in Perl by the use of for or foreach,
 these commands still suffer when items are removed or added to the array
 while in these loops. Also, if one wished to use break to step out of a
 foreach loop, then restart where they left at some later point, there is no
 way to do this without maintaining some additional state information.
