Interesting. What does using Moose buy you in this particular case? Or to put it another way, how much make-work code would you have to add if you didn't use it?

This is more than an idle question, because if I really needed your module for the very specific problem it solves, I think I'd be a bit upset if I discovered that it pulled in a comparatively huge OO framework. This is in no way meant as disrepect to Moose. It's more a question of ratios: the Moose tarball is 250Kb, not counting its twenty or so dependencies. Sledgehammer, meet egg.

Would it take twenty lines to implement this as a dependency-free module? A hundred lines? Would it be painful? I guess it comes down to whether one considers Moose as a reasonable building block for small, special-purpose modules.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
