NAME

MooseX::LexicalRoleApplication - Apply roles for a lexical scope only

VERSION

version 0.03

SYNOPSIS

  my $obj = SomeClass->new;
  $obj->method_from_role; # fails

  {
    my $guard = MooseX::LexicalRoleApplication->apply(SomeRole->meta, $obj);
    $obj->method_from_role; # works
  }

  $obj->method_from_role; # fails

DESCRIPTION

This module allows applying a role for the duration of a lexical scope only.

CAVEATS

Actual lexical role application isn't quite supported yet. The following example won't do what it's supposed to just yet:

  {
    my $guard = MooseX::LexicalRoleApplication->apply($role, $obj);
    $other_role->apply($obj);
  }

METHODS

apply ($role, $instance, \%rebless_params, \%application_options)

Will apply $role to $instance. %rebless_params will be passed to "rebless_instance" in Class::MOP::Class. %application_options will be passed to "apply" in Moose::Meta::Role.

A Scope::Guard will be returned. Keep it around as long as you want $role to be applied to $instance. You can cancel role removal by calling dismiss on the returned scope guard. If you want to remove the role immediately, you can simply undef the guard.
