Module Version: 0.002   Source   Latest Release: MooseX-Util-0.003

NAME ^

MooseX::Util - Moose::Util extensions

VERSION ^

This document describes version 0.002 of MooseX::Util - released March 03, 2014 as part of MooseX-Util.

SYNOPSIS ^

    use MooseX::Util qw{ ensure_all_roles with_traits };

    # profit!

DESCRIPTION ^

This is a utility module that handles all of the same functions that Moose::Util handles. In fact, most of the functions exported by this package are simply re-exports from Moose::Util, so you're recommended to read the documentation of that module for a comprehensive view.

However.

We've reimplemented a number of the functions our parent provides, for a variety of reasons. Those functions are documented here.

FUNCTIONS ^

with_traits(<classname> => (<trait1>, ... )

Given a class and one or more traits, we construct an anonymous class that is a subclass of the given class and consumes the traits given. This is exactly the same as "with_traits" in Moose::Util, except that we use "create_anon_class" in MooseX::Util::Meta::Class to construct the anonymous class, rather than "create_anon_class" in Moose::Meta::Class directly.

Essentially, this means that when we do:

    my $anon_class_name = with_traits('Zombie::Catcher', 'SomeTrait');

For $anon_class_name we get:

    Zombie::Catcher::__ANON__::SERIAL::1

Rather than:

    Moose::Meta::Class::__ANON__::SERIAL::1

This is nice because we have an idea of where the first anonymous class came from, whereas the second one could could be from anywhere.
