Question Beginning Perl Book Capture::Tiny Question

On page 566 there is a one description line of the Capture::Tiny module:

"Captures the STDOUT, STDERR and outputs from a subroutine."

given that the CPAN description states:

"Capture::Tiny provides a simple, portable way to capture almost anything sent to STDOUT or STDERR, regardless of whether it comes from Perl, from XS code or from an external program."

I am assuming that Capture::Tiny has nothing to do with subroutines. Could someone give me their take on this?

Thanks.
