NAME ^

Variable::Lazy - Lazy variables

VERSION ^

Version 0.02

SYNOPSIS ^

 lazy my $var = { foo() }

DESCRIPTION ^

This module implements lazy variables. It's different from other similar modules in that it works completely transparant: there is no way to see from the outside that the variable was lazy, and there is no speed penalty once the variable has been evaluated.

CAVEATS ^

The reification is triggered more easily than most other laziness modules. Unlike other modules it doesn't use referential semantics, so assigning the value to an other variable triggers it. This is something to keep into account.
