NAME ^

Class::MakeMethods::Template::Global - Method that are not instance-dependent

SYNOPSIS ^

  package MyObject;
  use Class::MakeMethods::Template::Global (
    scalar          => [ 'foo' ]
  );
  
  package main;

  MyObject->foo('bar')
  print MyObject->foo();
  ...
  print $my_instance->foo(); # same thing

DESCRIPTION ^

These meta-methods access values that are shared across all instances of your object in your process. For example, a hash_scalar meta-method will be able to store a different value for each hash instance you call it on, but a static_scalar meta-method will return the same value for any instance it's called on, and setting it from any instance will change the value that all other instances see.

Common Parameters: The following parameters are defined for Static meta-methods.

data

The shared value.
