NAME

Object::Pad::MOP::Slot - meta-object representation of data slot of a Object::Pad class

DESCRIPTION

Instances of this class represent a data slot of a class implemented by Object::Pad. Accessors provide information about the slot. The special value method allows access to the value of the given slot on instances of its class, letting the meta-object be used as a proxy to it.

This API should be considered experimental even within the overall context in which Object::Pad is expermental.

METHODS

name

   $name = $metaslot->name

Returns the name of the slot, as a plain string including the leading sigil character.

class

   $metaclass = $metaslot->class

Returns the Object::Pad::MOP::Class instance representing the class of which this slot is a member.

value

   $current = $metaslot->value( $instance )
   @current = $metaslot->value( $instance )
   %current = $metaslot->value( $instance )

An accessor method which returns the current value of the slot from an object instance.

   $metaslot->value( $instance ) = $new

On scalar slots, this method can also act as an lvalue mutator allowing a new value to be set.
