NAME

Array::Sticky - make elements of an array stick in place

SYNOPSIS

    use Array::Sticky;

    my @array;

    tie @array, 'Array::Sticky', head => ['head'], body => [1..5];
    # @array = ('head', 1..5)

    unshift @array, 'shoulders';
    # @array = ('head', 'shoulders', 1..5);

    my $val = shift @array;
    # $val = 'shoulders'
    # @array = ('head', 1..5)

DESCRIPTION

On very rare occasions, you want to make sure that the first few or last few elements of an array remain in their relative positions - stuck to the head of the array, or stuck to the tail. This module allows you to accomplish that.

SEE ALSO

By itself this module is probably not all that interesting. See Sticky::Array::INC for an actual case where you might care about using this module.
