			fields => [qw/generator/], # don't need to have a ref to $gen in each event
			handler => $tracker,

	$gen->enable(); # start generating events

	$code->(); # check for leaks in this code


	# live_objects is a Tie::RefHash::Weak hash

	my @leaked_objects = keys %{ $tracker->live_objects };

	print "leaked ", scalar(@leaked_objects), " objects\n";

	foreach my $object ( @leaked_objects ) {

This package provides an event generator and a handler for L<Devel::Events>,
that facilitate leak checking.

There are two components of this module: L<Devel::Events::Generator::Objects>,
and L<Devel::Events::Handler::ObjectTracker>.

The first one uses some trickery to generate events for every object creation
and destruction in code loaded after it was loaded.

The second one will listen on these events, and track all currently living

See the L</SYOPSIS> for how to write your own leak tracker, and
L<Catalyst::Plugin::LeakTracker> for a real world application of these classes.
