Class::Structured - provides a more structured class system for Perl
Specifically, this function provides for variables with access specifiers that will inherit properly, for constructors, and for abstract functions.
Abstract functions may be used on their own with no performance penalty.
Constructors and access specified variables each imply the use of the other - and will incur a semi-significant performance penalty.
Also, note that when using all of the features it can cause problems to define an AUTOLOAD function - so please don't.
