NAME

Class::Tiny::Immutable - Minimalist class construction, with read-only attributes

SYNOPSIS

In Person.pm:

  package Person;
  
  use Class::Tiny::Immutable qw( name );
  
  1;

In Employee.pm:

  package Employee;
  use parent 'Person';
  
  use Class::Tiny::Immutable qw( ssn ), {
    timestamp => sub { time }   # lazy attribute with default
  };
  
  1;

In example.pl:

  use Employee;
  
  my $obj = Employee->new; # dies, name and ssn attributes are required
  my $obj = Employee->new( name => "Larry", ssn => "111-22-3333" );
  
  my $name = $obj->name;
  my $timestamp = $obj->timestamp;
  
  # no attributes can be set
  $obj->ssn("222-33-4444"); # dies
  $obj->timestamp(time); # dies

DESCRIPTION

Class::Tiny::Immutable is a wrapper around Class::Tiny which makes the generated attributes read-only, and required to be set in the object constructor if they do not have a lazy default defined. In other words, attributes are either "lazy" or "required".

METHODS

In addition to methods inherited from Class::Tiny, Class::Tiny::Immutable defines the following additional introspection method:

get_all_required_attributes_for

  my @required = Class::Tiny::Immutable->get_all_required_attributes_for($class);

Returns an unsorted list of required attributes known to Class::Tiny::Immutable for a class and its superclasses.
