Class::Fields::Inherit - Inheritance of %FIELDS
use Class::Fields::Inherit; inherit_fields($derived_class, $base_class);
A simple module to handle inheritance of the %FIELDS hash. base.pm is usually its only customer, though there's nothing stopping you from using it.
The $derived_class will inherit all of the $base_class's fields. This is a good chunk of what happens when you use base.pm.
