Class::MakeMethods::Basic - Make really simple methods
package MyObject; use Class::MakeMethods::Basic::Hash ( 'new' => [ 'new' ], 'scalar' => [ 'foo', 'bar' ] ); package main; my $obj = MyObject->new( foo => "Foozle", bar => "Bozzle" ); print $obj->foo(); $obj->bar("Barbados");
This document describes the various subclasses of Class::MakeMethods included under the Basic::* namespace, and the method types each one provides.
The Basic subclasses provide stripped-down method-generation implementations.
Subroutines are generated as closures bound to each method name.
usea subclass of this package, the method declarations you provide as arguments cause subroutines to be generated and installed in your module. You can also omit the arguments to
useand instead make methods at runtime by passing the declarations to a subsequent call to
You may include any number of declarations in each call to
make(). If methods with the same name already exist, earlier calls to
make()win over later ones, but within each call, later declarations superceed earlier ones.
You can install methods in a different package by passing
-TargetClass => packageas your first arguments to
See "USAGE" in Class::MakeMethods for more details.
The following types of declarations are supported:
generator_type => 'method_name'
generator_type => 'name_1 name_2...'
generator_type => [ 'name_1', 'name_2', ...]
For a list of the supported values of generator_type, see "BASIC CLASSES" in Class::MakeMethods::Docs::Catalog, or the documentation for each subclass.
For each method name you provide, a subroutine of the indicated type will be generated and installed under that name in your module.
Method names should start with a letter, followed by zero or more letters, numbers, or underscores.
