NAME

Method::Specialize - Generate per-subclass variants for your methods.

SYNOPSIS

    package Foo;
        use Method::Specialize;

    use namespace::clean;

    specializing_method foo => sub {
        my $class = shift;

        return sub {
            warn "Hi, i'm a version of Foo::bar specialized for $class";
        };
    };

    package Bar;
    use base qw(Foo);

    Bar->foo; # calls the generator when needed, generally goes to cache

DESCRIPTION

This package uses Class::MethodCache to create per-subclass versions of a method.

This is useful for for removing dynamism from generated code.

The generated versions will be invalidated using the same mechanism that invalidates Perl's method resolution caching, so any changes to @ISA or a symbol table will clear the stale methods (under 5.10 this only clears the cached methods of affected classes, under 5.8 this clears all caches globaly).

EXPORTS

specializing_method $name, $generator

Declare a method $name in the current class, whose bodies are created per subclass using $generator.

TODO

Currently specializing the method on the superclass is suboptimal, since we must do some condition checking first. This can be done much more efficiently in XS.
