Class::MOP::Method::Accessor(3) Method Meta Object for accessors


version 2.1605


use Class::MOP::Method::Accessor;
my $reader = Class::MOP::Method::Accessor->new(
attribute => $attribute,
is_inline => 1,
accessor_type => 'reader',
$reader->body->execute($instance); # call the reader method


This is a subclass of "Class::MOP::Method" which is used by "Class::MOP::Attribute" to generate accessor code. It handles generation of readers, writers, predicates and clearers. For each type of method, it can either create a subroutine reference, or actually inline code by generating a string and "eval"'ing it.


This returns a new "Class::MOP::Method::Accessor" based on the %options provided.
  • attribute

    This is the "Class::MOP::Attribute" for which accessors are being generated. This option is required.

  • accessor_type

    This is a string which should be one of ``reader'', ``writer'', ``accessor'', ``predicate'', or ``clearer''. This is the type of method being generated. This option is required.

  • is_inline

    This indicates whether or not the accessor should be inlined. This defaults to false.

  • name

    The method name (without a package name). This is required.

  • package_name

    The package name for the method. This is required.

Returns the accessor type which was passed to "new".
Returns a boolean indicating whether or not the accessor is inlined.
This returns the Class::MOP::Attribute object which was passed to "new".
The method itself is generated when the accessor object is constructed.
