NAME ^

Class::MakeMethods::Template::Scalar - Methods for blessed scalars

SYNOPSIS ^

  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

DESCRIPTION ^

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.

Standard Methods

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.
