Mason::Plugin::LvalueAttributes - Create lvalue accessors for all rw component attributes
<%class> has 'a' => (is => "rw") has 'b' => (is => "ro") </%class> <%init> # set a to 5 $.a = 5; # set a to 6 $.a(6); # error $.b = 7; </%init>
This plugins creates an Lvalue accessor for every read/write attribute in the component. Which means that instead of writing:
$.name( "Foo" );
you can use the more natural syntax
$.name = "Foo";
Standard Moose setter features such as type checking, triggers, and coercion will not work on Lvalue attributes. You should only use this plugin when the convenience of the Lvalue attributes outweighs the need for setter features.
Inspired by Christopher Brown's MooseX::Meta::Attribute::Lvalue.
