NAME

Attribute::Final - Provides Java-style finalized methods

SYNOPSIS

    use Attribute::Final;

    package Beverage::Hot; 
    sub serve :final { ... } 
     
    package Tea; 
    use base 'Beverage::Hot'; 
     
    sub Tea::serve { # Compile-time error. 
    } 

DESCRIPTION

Final methods are methods which cannot be overriden in derived classes. This module will allow you to mark some methods as :final; prior to running the script, Perl will check that no packages which derive from classes with marked methods override those methods.
