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.
When you "use" a 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 "use" and 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 "use" or
"make()". If methods with the same name already exist, earlier calls
to "use" or "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
" as your first arguments to "use" or
See "USAGE" in Class::MakeMethods for more details.
The following types of declarations are supported:
- generator_type => 'method_name'
- generator_type => 'name_1
- generator_type => [ 'name_1',
For a list of the supported values of generator_type

CLASSES" in Class::MakeMethods::Docs::Catalog, or the documentation for
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.
