NAME

MooseX::ABCD - MooseX::ABC, but checking required methods on make_immutable

SYNOPSIS

   {
      package Shape;
      use Moose;
      use MooseX::ABCD;
      requires 'draw';
      __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
   }
   
   {
      package Circle;
      use Moose;
      extends 'Shape';
      sub draw {
         ...;
      }
      __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
   }
   
   my $shape  = Shape->new;   # dies
   my $circle = Circle->new;  # succeeds
   
   {
      package Square;
      use Moose;
      extends 'Shape';
      __PACKAGE__->meta->make_immutable;
      # ^^^ dies, draw is unimplemented
   }

DESCRIPTION

What does ABCD stand for? Hmmm... maybe "abstract base classes deferred"? or "abstract base classes declare-compatible"? (This module works with MooseX::Declare, whereas MooseX::ABC does not!)

Anyway, whatever ABCD does or does not stand for, this is what MooseX::ABCD does: it works just like MooseX::ABC, the checks that derived classes implement all abstract methods happen when the class is made immutable, not when inheritance is set up.

Why? It works better with MooseX::Declare this way.

Functions

This module exports one function to your namespace:

requires

Works like requires in Moose roles, but for classes.
