=head1 NAME

Attribute::Memoize - A Memoize attribute


  use Attribute::Memoize;

  sub fib :Memoize {
          my $n = shift;
          return $n if $n < 2;
          fib($n-1) + fib($n-2);
  print fib($_),"\n" for 1..50;


This attribute makes it slightly easier (and modern) to memoize a
function by providing an attribute, C<:Memoize> that makes it
unnecessary for you to explicitly call C<Memoize::memoize()>.
Options can be passed via the attribute per usual (see the
C<Attribute::Handlers> manpage for details, and the C<Memoize>
manpage for information on memoizing options):

  sub f :Memoize(NORMALIZER => 'main::normalize_f') {

However, since the call to C<memoize()> is now done in a different
package, it is necessary to include the package name in any function
names passed as options to the attribute, as shown above.
