There are a gazillion Class:: modules that will do that for you. What you also can do is:
for my $prop (qw [field1 field2 field3]) { eval sprintf <<'END', ($prop) x 3; sub %s { my $self = shift; if (@_) {$self->{%s} = shift}; return $self->{%s}; } } END }
Then you won't have any runtime penalty due to AUTOLOAD, or whatever runtime solution your Class:: choice uses.

Or you could use a smart editor that allows you to create an accessor using a macro.

Personally, if I find myself making enough accessors in a class that I start contemplating automating it, I wonder whether I really need an object, or whether I'm just creating a glorified struct. It's usually the latter - and Perl already has an excellent data structure to use as a struct: it's called a hash.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
