Getting Started with Moose
I recently decided to get with the program and use Moose in my current/impending projects. All the cool kids are doing it!
I immediately hit a roadblock: I'm using ActiveState Perl, and their repository does not have Moose. (Apparently they had some problems building it.)
So I went searching, got help, and resolved my problems. Now I have Moose installed. Here's how I did it, and below are links to essential Moose-related resources.
But first, I want to mention something which I found confusing: MooseX. What is MooseX? How is it different from Moose?
MooseX is a namespace for Moose eXtensions which are not part of the Moose package proper. You will find a large number of Moose extensions in the MooseX namepace on CPAN.
Windows: ActiveState Perl 5.8
Alternative ppm repositories are available; see http://theoryx5.uwinnipeg.ca/ppms/ for some suggestions.
Windows: ActiveState Perl 5.10
Alternative ppm repositories are available; see http://cpan.uwinnipeg.ca/PPMPackages/10xx/ for some suggestions.
Other platforms, including Strawberry Perl on Windows
