Self creating OO Module field accessors...by blue_cowdawg (Monsignor)
|on Jan 12, 2006 at 22:28 UTC||Need Help??|
blue_cowdawg has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
OK... I confess... I'm lazy...
Given I have a module defined such that:
and in my module I want to provide a method such that calling:
but in my real module I have a lot of fields to create accessors for. Being that I'm lazy I don't want to have to write every single accessor method myself.
Did I dream this or did I see something somewhere where there was a trick or a CPAN module I could use that would invoke some sort of magic to make it appear that I wrote all those accessors and have the code behave as such by writing ONE sub that acts like them all?
Anybody know of such a thing?
