in reply to Detecting declaration type?

Apparently introspection isn't part of the API

see attributes, Attribute::Handlers

#!/usr/bin/perl -- package Foo; BEGIN { use Scalar::Util qw( refaddr ); our %attrs; sub MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref, @attrs) = @_; $attrs{ refaddr $scalarref } = \@attrs; return; } sub FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref) = @_; my $attrs = $attrs{ refaddr $scalarref }; return $attrs ? @$attrs : (); } sub new { print "Foo::new! @_\n"; my $class = shift; return bless { yo => [@_] }, $class ; } } use strict; use warnings; use attributes(); use Data::Dump; my Foo $bar : WHAT = 24; my Foo $ey = 42; my Foo $new :AND :CHEWY = Foo->new( 42 ); print "\n\n"; for my $ref( \$bar, \$ey, \$new ){ dd $ref; dd [ attributes::get($ref) ]; dd [ attributes::_fetch_attrs($ref) ]; #~ use Devel::Peek;Dump( $ref ); print "\n\n"; } dd \%Foo::attrs; __END__ Foo::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! Foo SCALAR(0x9c8284) WHAT Foo::new! Foo 42 Foo::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! Foo SCALAR(0xa3358c) AND CHEWY \24 Foo::FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES!

    Great Anonymous!

    you seem to solve it w/o any XS-dependencies which is brilliant.

    I'll test it as soon as possible!

    Cheers Rolf

      Here it is slightly clearer description of the problem, you cannot find out what the type is -- attributes calls the appropriate MODIFY handler and that is it, but you can't do FETCH-ing outside of the class, attributes::get will call the wrong FETCH based on caller

      #!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use attributes(); use Data::Dump; BEGIN { package Junk; $INC{'Junk.pm'}=__FILE__; use Scalar::Util(); sub Junk::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Junk::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref, @attrs) = @_; $Junk::attrs{ Scalar::Util::refaddr $scalarref } = \@attrs; return; } sub Junk::FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Junk::FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref) = @_; my $attrs = $Junk::attrs{ Scalar::Util::refaddr $scalarref }; return $attrs ? @$attrs : (); } } BEGIN { package Foo; use Scalar::Util(); sub MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref, @attrs) = @_; $Foo::attrs{ Scalar::Util::refaddr $scalarref } = \@attrs; return; } sub FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref) = @_; my $attrs = $Foo::attrs{ Scalar::Util::refaddr $scalarref }; return $attrs ? @$attrs : (); } sub MODIFY_REF_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::MODIFY_REF_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref, @attrs) = @_; $Foo::attrs{ attributes::refaddr $scalarref } = \@attrs; return; } sub FETCH_REF_ATTRIBUTES { print "Foo::FETCH_REF_ATTRIBUTES! @_\n"; my($package, $scalarref) = @_; my $attrs = $Foo::attrs{ Scalar::Util::refaddr $scalarref }; return $attrs ? @$attrs : (); } sub new { print "Foo::new! @_\n"; my $class = shift; return bless { yo => [@_] }, $class ; } } sub FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES { print "\nCalling me is a mistake? bug?\n@_\n@{[caller]}\nSince the +re is no object, you don't know type(package)\n\n"; return; } BEGIN { * FETCH_REF_ATTRIBUTES = \&FETCH_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES ; } my Junk $bar :STOOL :CHAIR = 42; my Foo $new :AND :CHEWY = Foo->new( 42 ); for my $ref( \$bar, \$new ){ dd [ $ref, attributes::reftype( $ref ) , attributes::_guess_stash +( $ref ) ], [ attributes::get($ref) ], [ attributes::_fetch_attrs($ref) ];;; print "\n\n"; } dd \%Junk::attrs , \%Foo::attrs; __END__ Junk::MODIFY_SCALAR_ATTRIBUTES!
