( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I'll start by saying that I expect Moose to be ubiquitous. If it's not now, it will be. Also, anyone installing something as obscure as Array::GroupBy is sure to have something as mainstream as Moose.

Anyway, what I got in this particular case was mostly Moose::Util::TypeConstraints. At object creation, and any time an attribute is set, the attributes are checked against the constraints I set. If I weren't using Moose, I'd be using Params::Validate. Aside from that, I get the usual OO framework stuff: a constructor and attribute accessors.

The make-work code I'm saved from writing is, again, mostly the input validation stuff. My version of Moose is a ways behind the current, so I wound up doing some of this myself in order to get the detail I wanted. I found it pretty tedious, and the results challenge comprehension. With a newer version of Moose, this was easier to do and easier to read. Without Moose (or some module), it could have been more work than writing the actual functionality of the module.

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.
