NAME ^

Specio::Exporter - Base class for type libraries

VERSION ^

version 0.08

SYNOPSIS ^

  package MyApp::Type::Library;

  use parent 'Specio::Exporter';

  use Specio::Declare;

  declare( ... );

  # more types here

  package MyApp::Foo;

  use MyApp::Type::Library

DESCRIPTION ^

Inheriting from this package makes your package a type exporter. By default, types defined in a package are never visible outside of the package. When you inherit from this package, all the types you define internally become available via exports.

The exported types are available through the importing package's t() subroutine.

By default, types your package imports are not re-exported:

  package MyApp::Type::Library;

  use parent 'Specio::Exporter';

  use Specio::Declare;
  use Specio::Library::Builtins;

In this case, the types provided by Specio::Library::Builtins are not exported to packages which use MyApp::Type::Library.

You can explicitly ask for types to be re-exported:

  package MyApp::Type::Library;

  use parent 'Specio::Exporter';

  use Specio::Declare;
  use Specio::Library::Builtins -reexport;

In this case, packages which use MyApp::Type::Library will get all the types from Specio::Library::Builtins as well as any types defined in MyApp::Type::Library.
