NAME

MooseX::GlobRef - Store a Moose object in glob reference

SYNOPSIS

  package My::IO;

  use Moose;
  use MooseX::GlobRef;

  has 'file' => ( is => 'ro', isa => 'Str', required => 1 );

  sub open {
    my $fh = shift;
    open $fh, $fh->file or confess "cannot open";
    return $fh;
  }

  sub getlines {
    my $fh = shift;
    return readline $fh;
  }

  my $io = My::IO->new( file => '/etc/passwd' );
  print "::::::::::::::\n";
  print $io->file, "\n";
  print "::::::::::::::\n";
  $io->open;
  print $io->getlines;

DESCRIPTION

This module allows to store Moose object in glob reference of file handle. The class attributes will be stored in hash slot associated with glob reference. It allows to create a Moose version of IO::Handle.

The attributes can be accessed directly with following expression:

  my $hashref = \%{*$self};
  print $hashref->{key};

or shorter:

  print *$self->{key};

but the standard accessors should be used instead:

  print $self->key;

METHODS

init_meta( args : Hash ) : Moose::Meta::Class
