Class::MakeMethods::Template::Scalar - Methods for blessed scalars
package MyObject; use Class::MakeMethods::Template::ExternalData ( new => 'new', scalar => 'foo', ); package main; my $obj = MyObject->new( foo => "Foozle" ); print $obj->foo(); # Prints Foozle $obj->foo("Bamboozle"); # Sets $$obj print $obj->foo(); # Prints Bamboozle
Supports the Generic object constructor and accessors meta-method types, but uses scalar refs as the underlying implementation type, so only one accessor method can be used effectively.
The following methods from Generic are all supported:
new scalar string string_index number boolean bits array hash tiedhash hash_of_arrays object instance array_of_objects code code_or_scalar
See Class::MakeMethods::Template::Generic for the interfaces and behaviors of these method types.
However, note that due to special nature of this package, all accessor methods reference the same scalar value, so setting a value with one method will overwrite the value retrieved by another.
