Class::Trait::Base - Base class for all Traits

Class::Trait::Base(3pm) User Contributed Perl Documentation Class::Trait::Base(3pm)

NAME

Class::Trait::Base - Base class for all Traits

SYNOPSIS

This class needs to be inherited by all traits so they can be identified as traits.
        use Class::Trait 'base';

DESCRIPTION

Not much going on here, just an AUTOLOAD method to help properly dispatch calls to "SUPER::" and an "apply" method.

apply

  require TSomeTrait;
  TSomeTrait->apply($object);
This method allows you to apply a trait to an object. It returns the trait so you can then reapply it:
 TTricks->apply($dog_object)
        ->apply($cat_object);
This is merely syntactic sugar for the "Class::Trait::apply" method:
 Class::Trait->apply($dog_object, 'TTricks');
 Class::Trait->apply($cat_object, 'TTricks');

SEE ALSO

Class::Trait, Class::Trait::Config
