Class::Factory::Util(3) Provide utility methods for factory classes


package My::Class;
use Class::Factory::Util;


This module exports a method that is useful for factory classes.


When this module is loaded, it creates a method in its caller named "subclasses()". This method returns a list of the available subclasses for the package. It does this by looking in @INC as well as the directory containing the caller, and finding any modules in the immediate subdirectories of the calling module.

So if you have the modules ``Foo::Base'', ``Foo::Base::Bar'', and ``Foo::Base::Baz'', then the return value of "Foo::Base->subclasses()" would be ``Bar'' and ``Baz''.
