NAME

Class::MOP::Object - Base class for metaclasses

VERSION

version 2.1807

DESCRIPTION

This class is a very minimal base class for metaclasses.

METHODS

This class provides a few methods which are useful in all metaclasses.

Class::MOP::???->meta

This returns a Class::MOP::Class object.

$metaobject->dump($max_depth)

This method uses Data::Dumper to dump the object. You can pass an optional maximum depth, which will set $Data::Dumper::Maxdepth. The default maximum depth is 1.

$metaclass->throw_error($message)

This method calls "_throw_exception" in Class::MOP::Mixin internally, with an object of class Moose::Exception::Legacy.
