NAME ^

Aspect::Pointcut::Highest - Pointcut for preventing recursive matching

SYNOPSIS ^

  use Aspect;
  
  # High-level creation
  my $pointcut1 = highest;
  
  # Manual creation
  my $pointcut2 = Aspect::Pointcut::Highest->new;

DESCRIPTION ^

For aspects including timers and other Aspect::Advice::Around-based advice, recursion can be significant problem.

The highest pointcut solves this problem by matching only on the highest invocation of a function. If the function is called again recursively within the first call, at any depth, the deeper calls will be not match and the advice will not be executed.
