PerlBean::Method::Constructor - contains bean constructor method information

SYNOPSIS

 TODO

ABSTRACT

Abstract PerlBean method information

DESCRIPTION

PerlBean::Method class for bean constructor method information. This is a subclass from PerlBean::Method with the purpose to differentiate between plain methods and constructors.

CONSTRUCTOR

new(OPT_HASH_REF)

Creates a new PerlBean::Method::Constructor object. OPT_HASH_REF is a hash reference used to pass initialization options. OPT_HASH_REF is mandatory. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

Options for OPT_HASH_REF inherited through package PerlBean::Method may include:

body

Passed to set_body().

description

Passed to set_description().

documented

Passed to set_documented(). Defaults to 1.

exception_class

Passed to set_exception_class(). Defaults to 'Error::Simple'.

implemented

Passed to set_implemented(). Defaults to 1.

interface

Passed to set_interface().

method_name

Passed to set_method_name(). Mandatory option.

parameter_description

Passed to set_parameter_description().

perl_bean

Passed to set_perl_bean().

volatile

Passed to set_volatile().

METHODS

get_body()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the method's body.

get_description()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the method description.

get_exception_class()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the class to throw in eventual interface implementations.

get_method_name()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the method's name.

get_package()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the package name. The package name is obtained from the PerlBean to which the PerlBean::Attribute belongs. Or, if the PerlBean::Attribute does not belong to a PerlBean, main is returned.

get_parameter_description()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the parameter description.

get_perl_bean()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns the PerlBean to which this method belongs.

is_documented()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns whether the method is documented or not.

is_implemented()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns whether the method is implemented or not.

is_interface()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns whether the method is defined as interface or not.

is_volatile()

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Returns whether the method is volatile or not.

set_body(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the method's body. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

VALUE must match regular expression:
.*
set_description(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the method description. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_documented(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. State that the method is documented. VALUE is the value. Default value at initialization is 1. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_exception_class(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the class to throw in eventual interface implementations. VALUE is the value. Default value at initialization is Error::Simple. VALUE may not be undef. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_implemented(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. State that the method is implemented. VALUE is the value. Default value at initialization is 1. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_interface(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. State that the method is defined as interface. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_method_name(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the method's name. VALUE is the value. VALUE may not be undef. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

VALUE must match regular expression:
^\w+$
set_parameter_description(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the parameter description. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

set_perl_bean(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Set the PerlBean to which this method belongs. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

VALUE must be a (sub)class of:
PerlBean
set_volatile(VALUE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. State that the method is volatile. VALUE is the value. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

write_code(FILEHANDLE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Write the code for the method to FILEHANDLE. FILEHANDLE is an IO::Handle object. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.

write_pod(FILEHANDLE)

This method is inherited from package PerlBean::Method. Write the documentation for the method to FILEHANDLE. FILEHANDLE is an IO::Handle object. On error an exception Error::Simple is thrown.
