$pkg module file header section
 package Circle;
 
 use 5.008;
 use base qw( Shape Exporter );
 use strict;
 use warnings;
 use Error qw(:try);
 require Exporter;
set_package()

is used to set the package name in package Circle.

add_dependency() or set_dependency()

are used to add ${pkg}::Dependency objects like the use and require lines in the example. Note however that except for use base all use dependencies in the example above are set by default when initializing a $pkg object without specifying a dependency option.

set_use_perl_version()

is used to set the version number in the use 5.008 dependency. By default the version number is set to \\\$]. This is an exception to the ${pkg}::Dependency mechanism.

push_base(), set_base() or unshift_base()

are used to express inheritance relationships. When the $pkg is written, the inheritance relationships -like Shape in this example- appear in the use base list. The Exporter bit is there because symbols are exported by package Circle.

$pkg symbols:
add_symbol() or set_symbol()

are used to add ${pkg}::Symbol objects. ${pkg}::Symbol objects are described in their own manual pages.

$pkg complimentary symbols:
 # Used by _value_is_allowed
 our \%ALLOW_ISA = (
 );
 
 # Used by _value_is_allowed
 our \%ALLOW_REF = (
 );
 
 # Used by _value_is_allowed
 our \%ALLOW_RX = (
     'radius' => [ '^\\d*(\\.\\d+)?\$' ],
 );

 # Used by _value_is_allowed
 our \%ALLOW_VALUE = (
 );
 
 # Used by _initialize
 our \%DEFAULT_VALUE = (
 );

 # Package version
 our (\$VERSION) = '\$Revision: 1.0 $' =~ /\\\$Revision:\\s+([^\\s]+)/;

The our \%ALLOW.* symbols above are used by the generated class to check rules that apply to the $pkg's attributes. They are not exported. You could theoretically overwrite them. But don't do that!

The our \%DEFAULT_VALUE symbol above is used at class instantiation to set the attribute's default values of the PerlBean. It is not exported. Sometimes you need to overwrite values. That's not particularly nice and should be addressed.

The our (\$VERSION) is there to allow versioning through CVS. You could overwrite it.

Preloaded section end

 __END__

If the $pkg is autoloaded then the code above is generated in order to autoload the methods that follow. The method set_autoloaded() is used to change the autoload behavior of a $pkg. NOTE: In my experience it pays to first have $pkgs preloaded and to switch to autoload after debugging.

NAME section
 =head1 NAME
 
 Circle - circle shape

The package name ( which was set through set_package() ) is put in Circle -.

set_short_description()

is used to set a short package description in - circle shape.

ABSTRACT section
 =head1 ABSTRACT
 
 circle shape
set_abstract()

is used to set the abstract information in circle shape.

DESCRIPTION section
 =head1 DESCRIPTION
 
 circle shape
set_description()

is used to set the description information circle shape. If no description is set then C<Circle> TODO would be shown.

EXPORT section

This section describes all exported ${pkg}::Symbol objects like in the following example.

 =head1 EXPORT
 
 By default nothing is exported.
 
 =head2 geo
 
 Geometric constants
 
 =over
 
 =item \$PI
 
 The PI constant
 
 =back
CONSTRUCTOR section

All constructors are documented in alphabetical order in this section. $pkg by default generates documentation for the new() constructor. In theory you can overwrite the new() constructor and hence alter the documentation thereof. Before you do so, I suggest you thoroughly contemplate this. You can of course add a ${pkg}::Method::Constructor object ( e.g. new_from_file ) in order to customize construction.

METHODS section

All methods that aren't constructors are documented in alphabetical order in this section. ${pkg}::Method objects in the PerlBean by default generate documentation for the methods. In theory you can overwrite the methods. Again, I suggest you thoroughly contemplate the consequences.

SEE ALSO section
 L<Rectangle>,
 L<Shape>,
 L<Square>

All $pkg objects inside a ${pkg}::Collection are referred in this section as listed.

BUGS section

This section always has None known (yet.) in it.

Implementation section

This section contains the implementation of the methods and constructors. First listed are the constructors which are ordered alphabetically and new() and _initialize() are kept near to each-other. Then the normal methods are listed alphabetically.
