=head1 NAME

Class::MakeMethods::Template::Global - Method that are not instance-dependent

=head1 SYNOPSIS

  package MyObject;
  use Class::MakeMethods::Template::Global (
    scalar          => [ 'foo' ]
  );
  
  package main;

  MyObject->foo('bar')
  print MyObject->foo();
  ...
  print $my_instance->foo(); # same thing

=head1 DESCRIPTION

These meta-methods access values that are shared across all instances
of your object in your process. For example, a hash_scalar meta-method
will be able to store a different value for each hash instance you
call it on, but a static_scalar meta-method will return the same
value for any instance it's called on, and setting it from any
instance will change the value that all other instances see.

B<Common Parameters>: The following parameters are defined for Static meta-methods.
