NAME

Class::MOP::Method::Accessor - Method Meta Object for accessors

VERSION

version 2.1807

SYNOPSIS

    use Class::MOP::Method::Accessor;
    my $reader = Class::MOP::Method::Accessor->new(
        attribute     => $attribute,
        is_inline     => 1,
        accessor_type => 'reader',
    );
    $reader->body->execute($instance); # call the reader method

DESCRIPTION

This is a subclass of "Class::MOP::Method" which is used by "Class::MOP::Attribute" to generate accessor code. It handles generation of readers, writers, predicates and clearers. For each type of method, it can either create a subroutine reference, or actually inline code by generating a string and "eval"'ing it.

METHODS

Class::MOP::Method::Accessor->new(%options)
This returns a new "Class::MOP::Method::Accessor" based on the %options provided.
attribute
 
This is the "Class::MOP::Attribute" for which accessors are being generated. This option is required.
accessor_type
 
This is a string which should be one of "reader", "writer", "accessor", "predicate", or "clearer". This is the type of method being generated. This option is required.
is_inline
 
This indicates whether or not the accessor should be inlined. This defaults to false.
name
 
The method name (without a package name). This is required.
package_name
 
The package name for the method. This is required.
$metamethod->accessor_type
Returns the accessor type which was passed to "new".
$metamethod->is_inline
Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the accessor is inlined.
$metamethod->associated_attribute
This returns the Class::MOP::Attribute object which was passed to "new".
$metamethod->body
The method itself is generated when the accessor object is constructed.
