Alien::Role

NAME

Alien::Role − Extend Alien::Base with roles!

VERSION

version 2.37

SYNOPSIS

package Alien::libfoo;
use base qw( Alien::Base );
use Role::Tiny::With qw( with );
with 'Alien::Role::Dino';
with 'Alien::Role::Alt';
1;

DESCRIPTION

The "Alien::Role" namespace is intended for writing roles that can be applied to Alien::Base to extend its functionality. You could of course write subclasses that extend Alien::Base, but then you have to either stick with just one subclass or deal with multiple inheritance! It is recommended that you use Role::Tiny since it can be used on plain old Perl classes which is good since Alien::Base doesn’t use anything fancy like Moose or Moo. There are two working examples that use this technique that are worth checking out in the event you are interested: Alien::Role::Dino and Alien::Role::Alt.

This class itself doesn’t do anything, it just documents the technique.
