Devel::Declare::Interface - Interface to Devel-Declare parsers.


A higher level interface to Devel-Declare. This is the package you will interact with the most when using Devel::Declare::Parser.


    package My::Keyword::Method;
    use strict;
    use warnings;

    use Devel::Declare::Parser;

    # Look at Exporter-Declare to have most of this done for you.
    sub import {
        my $class = shift;
        my $destination = caller;

        enhance( $destination, "make_method", "method" );
        no strict 'refs';
        *{ $destination . '::make_method' } = \&my_keyword;

    sub make_method {
        my ( $name, $code ) = @_;
        my $dest = caller;
        no strict 'refs';
        *{ $destination . '::' . $name } = $code;



The following functions are all exported by default.

register_parser( $name )
register_parser( $name, $class )

Register a parser under a short name. If $class is not provided caller will be used.

get_parser( $name );

Get the parser class by short name.

enhance( $dest_class, $name, $parser );
enhance( $dest_class, $name, $parser, $type );

Make $name a keyword in $dest_class that uses $parser. $parser can be a short name or class name. $type defaults to 'const'.


This module is part of the Fennec project. See Fennec for more details. Fennec is a project to develop an extendable and powerful testing framework. Together the tools that make up the Fennec framework provide a potent testing environment.

The tools provided by Fennec are also useful on their own. Sometimes a tool created for Fennec is useful outside the greator framework. Such tools are turned into their own projects. This is one such project.

Fennec - The core framework

The primary Fennec project that ties them all together.
