in reply to How to make Common Variables defined in Module available to Scripts

Some languages allow access to class, object and even class level instance variables, but IMHO the best way is to use class methods (getters/accessors) for getting variables if they are not object attributes. And if they are, use instance accessor methods.

Class::MethodMaker, Class::BuildMethods.

[Corion]: Maybe I should move the extraction of the code from the SYNOPSIS section into the author tests, or something like that...
[choroba]: Corion Sounds reasonable
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah - I basically have the same for regenerating README and README.mkdown already, except that I do that in Makefile.PL, but I guess one or the other thing should somehow work ;)
[ambrus]: was this bug: https://rt.cpan. org/Public/Bug/ Display.html?id= 59814
[Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
[Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
