in reply to Adding a method to an existing object

The following two modules on CPAN allow you to add methods to an object:

* MooseX::SingletonMethod (for Moose objects)
* Object::Method (for normal Perl objects)

Alternatively in Moose you can apply roles directly to an object:

    YourRole->meta->apply( $your_object ); # $your_object now has the methods from YourRole

I did a few blog posts on how roles work and howto implement singleton-methods (in Moose). They're listed in the MooseX::SingletonMethod CPAN page. Also this link should bring them up.
