in reply to Class Attributes with Moo ?

Yes, this is a MooX module I've been meaning to write for some time. Like you, I've been using package variables, but a proper class attribute would give you delegation, type constraints, triggers, etc.

I may have a stab at writing something along these lines in the next couple of weeks. I just need to delve into the Method::Generate::* code to see how feasible it might be.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Thank you for your reply :-) I was wondering if i was missing anything.
    In the future if i need to use inheritance, i might put this timer as a simple attribute, and pass it to my objects from the client code. It's giving some non-related job to the client, but it should do the trick.
    I'll keep an eye open, in case you created a new MooX module. Sorry i cannot help : i don't have the skills nor the time to develop them right now.

      OK, MooX::ClassAttribute is now on CPAN. Subclassing Method::Generate::Accessor to generate class attributes was relatively easy. The hard parts were getting class attributes defined in roles to work, and getting Moose inflation going.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

        Wow, that was fast! You're a star thanks a lot :-)

    I don't have the time to try it today, but maybe tomorrow : Class::Data::Inheritable might do the trick according to its documentation.
    This could be enough for me right now.

    The annoying bit is that you have to inherit from Class::Data::Inheritable. I'm not sure how annoying that could be though.
