Class::Accessor::Lvalue - create Lvalue accessors
use base qw( Class::Accessor::Lvalue );
__PACKAGE__->mk_accessors(qw( bar ))
my $foo = Foo->new;
$foo->bar = 42;
print $foo->bar; # prints 42
This module subclasses Class::Accessor in order to provide lvalue accessor
- Though Class::Accessor mutators allows for the setting of
multiple values to an attribute, the mutators that this module creates
handle single scalar values only. This should not be too much of a
hinderance as you can still explicitly use an anonymous array.
- Due to the hoops we have to jump through to preserve the
Class::Accessor ->get and ->set behaviour this module is potentially
slow. Should you not need the flexibility granted by the ->get and
->set methods, it's highly reccomended that you use
Class::Accessor::Lvalue::Fast which is simpler and much faster.
