Role::Declare::Should - skip some checks when not testing


    package My::New::Role;
    use Role::Declare::Should;


This module is a drop-in replacement for Role::Declare which will additionally disable argument count and type checks when not running in a test environment, as determined by Devel::StrictMode.

If STRICT is enabled, using Role::Declare::Should is functionally identical to Role::Declare (any import arguments are passed on).

If STRICT is not enabled, it's equivalent to:

  use Role::Declare -lax, -no_type_check;
