NAME

MooseX::GlobRef::Object - Store a Moose object in glob reference

SYNOPSIS

  package My::IO;

  use Moose;

  extends 'MooseX::GlobRef::Object';

  has 'filename' => ( is => 'ro', isa => 'Str', required => 1 );

  sub open {
    my $fh = shift;
    my $hashref = ${*$fh};
    open $fh, $hashref->{filename} or confess "cannot open";
    return $fh;
  }

  sub getlines {
    my $fh = shift;
    return readline $fh;
  }

  my $io = new My::IO filename=>'/etc/passwd';

DESCRIPTION

This meta-policy allows to store Moose object in glob reference or file handle. The class attributes will be stored in anonymous hash associated with glob reference. It allows to create a Moose version of IO::Handle.

The elements of hash can be accessed with ${*$self}->{key} expression.

You can use MooseX::GlobRef::Meta::Instance metaclass directly if you need more customised configuration.
