autodie::Scope::GuardStack(3) Hook stack for managing scopes via %^H


use autodie::Scope::GuardStack;
my $stack = autodie::Scope::GuardStack->new
$^H{'my-key'} = $stack;
$stack->push_hook(sub {});


This class is a stack of hooks to be called in the right order as scopes go away. The stack is only useful when inserted into "%^H" and will pop hooks as their ``scope'' is popped. This is useful for uninstalling or reinstalling subs in a namespace as a pragma goes out of scope.

Due to how "%^H" works, this class is only useful during the compilation phase of a perl module and relies on the internals of how perl handles references in "%^H". This module is not a part of autodie's public API.



  my $stack = autodie::Scope::GuardStack->new;

Creates a new "autodie::Scope::GuardStack". The stack is initially empty and must be inserted into "%^H" by the creator.


  $stack->push_hook(sub {});

Add a sub to the stack. The sub will be called once the current compile-time ``scope'' is left. Multiple hooks can be added per scope
