Package::Stash::PP - pure perl implementation of the Package::Stash API
This is a backend for Package::Stash implemented in pure perl, for those without a compiler or who would like to use this inline in scripts.
Scalar slots are only considered to exist if they are defined
This is due to a shortcoming within perl itself. See "Making References" in perlref point 7 for more information.
remove_symbol also replaces the associated typeglob
This can cause unexpected behavior when doing manipulation at compile time - removing subroutines will still allow them to be called from within the package as subroutines (although they will not be available as methods). This can be considered a feature in some cases (this is how namespace::clean works, for instance), but should not be relied upon - use
remove_globdirectly if you want this behavior.
Some minor memory leaks
The pure perl implementation has a couple minor memory leaks (see the TODO tests in t/20-leaks.t) that I'm having a hard time tracking down - these may be core perl bugs, it's hard to tell.
