Bread::Board::Service::Deferred - Helper for holding a service that is not quite constructed yet


version 0.37


Class for proxy objects used when resolving circular dependencies.

This class uses a few nasty tricks: replacing $_[0], using AUTOLOAD, overriding isa meta and can, heavy operator overloading... you should probably not take inspiration from this code unless you really know what you're doing.

In practice, a variable containing an instance of Bread::Board::Service::Deferred will have its value changed to the actual value instantiated by the service at the first opportunity, and you should not notice that this class was ever there.
