NAME

Data::Object::Role::Proxyable

ABSTRACT

Proxyable Role for Perl 5

SYNOPSIS

package Example;

use Moo;

with 'Data::Object::Role::Proxyable';

sub build_proxy {
  my ($self, $package, $method, @args) = @_;

  if ($method eq 'true') {
    return sub {
      return 1;
    }
  }

  if ($method eq 'false') {
    return sub {
      return 0;
    }
  }

  return undef;
}

package main;

my $example = Example->new;

DESCRIPTION

This package provides a wrapper around the AUTOLOAD routine which processes calls to routines which don't exist. Adding a build_proxy method to the consuming class acts as a hook into routine dispatching, which processes calls to routines which don't exist. The build_proxy routine is called as a method and receives $self, $package, $method, and any arguments passed to the method as a list of arguments, e.g. @args. The build_proxy method must return a routine (i.e. a callback) or the undefined value which results in a "method missing" error.
