NAME ^

Class::Proxy - an object proxy

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Class::Proxy;

        my $pobj = Class::Proxy->new( victim => $obj );

        $pobj->victim_method();

DESCRIPTION ^

Objects can be served by Class::Proxy. In practice, any method call to the proxy will be forwarded to the original object (victim). The purpose of that is to alter method calls in a generic way. This can be used for

and many more.

Altering calls

Class::Proxy is a Class::Listener (Class::Listener). Two signals are registered to it:

method

When a method is called.

victim

When a victim was assigned.

HIDING ^

The Class::Proxy constructor returns a Class::Proxy object and not a victim object. That means it isn't very good hiding itsef and this may cause conflicts. But when the victim class was written following oo-recommendations Class::Proxy should work fine.

[Note] In future Class::Proxy will try to obscure himself (via tie?). Currently ref() or isa() call would reveal Class::Proxy. Also caller() would give hints.

EXPORT

None by default.
