RFC: an unusual inside-out object generatorby xdg (Monsignor)
|on Jul 22, 2005 at 16:49 UTC||Need Help??|
Dear fellow monks, I'm seeking comments on a new module I've written, including suggestions for improving its name before I release an initial version to CPAN. This module started as a thought exercise coming out of Abigail's talk at YAPC::NA on Lexical::Attributes and Ingy's talks about Spiffy. It's now reached the point where the basics are working and it might be of interest. The working name is "Object::Local". Here's a quick example of use:
At its core, this module helps create inside-out objects. It does some things like Lexical::Attributes and Spiffy, but in some different (better? worse?) ways. Like those modules, it's a bit unusual compared to other object/class generators out there and has some of its own unique approaches:
Suggestions for a better name are welcome. Some criteria I'd like to apply to the naming include:
I've considered variations such as:
Your early feedback on functionality or names is appreciated. When I release the module, I'll have more detailed commentary on the internals, speed benchmarks, and pros/cons versus other approaches.
