Role::HasPayload::Merged - merge autogenerated payload with constructor-specified payload


version 0.006


  package Example;
  use Moose;

  with qw(Role::HasPayload::Merged);

  sub Payload { 'Role::HasPayload::Meta::Attribute::Payload' }

  has height => (
    is => 'ro',
    traits   => [ Payload ],

  has width => (
    is => 'ro',
    traits   => [ Payload ],

  has color => (
    is => 'ro',


  my $example = Example->new({
    height  => 10,
    width   => 20,
    color   => 'blue',
    payload => { depth => 30 },

  $example->payload; # { height => 10, width => 20, depth => 30 }


Role::HasPayload::Merged provides a payload method and a payload attribute. It computes the result of the payload method when it's called, first by gathering the values of attributes marked with Role::HasPayload::Meta::Attribute::Payload, then by merging in the contents of the payload attribute (provided at construction).

If an entry in the constructor-provided payload already exists in the autogenerated payload, a warning is issued and the autogenerated value is used.

For a bit more on the autogenerated payload, see Role::HasPayload::Auto.

This role is especially useful when combined with Role::HasMessage::Errf.
