NAME Class::Factory::Util - Provide utility methods for factory classes SYNOPSIS package My::Class; use Class::Factory::Util; My::Class->subclasses; DESCRIPTION This module exports a method that is useful for factory classes. USAGE When this module is loaded, it creates a method in its caller named "subclasses()". This method returns a list of the available subclasses for the package. It does this by looking in @INC as well as the directory containing the caller, and finding any modules in the immediate subdirectories of the calling module. So if you have the modules "Foo::Base", "Foo::Base::Bar", and "Foo::Base::Baz", then the return value of "Foo::Base->subclasses()" would be "Bar" and "Baz".
