in thread Self creating OO Module field accessors...

      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.

I hear you! If all this module was functionally only a struct I'd certainly agree with you. Except in the case of this module there is a lot more going on.

    You might consider whether you have an object that has-a struct that you should allow public access to. Then you'd need only one accessor method that returns a ref to the struct and allow the user to stomp all over it access its fields as required. :-)
