       Class::MakeMethods::Basic - Make	really simple methods

	 package MyObject;
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Basic::Hash (
	   'new'     =>	[ 'new'	],
	   'scalar'  =>	[ 'foo', 'bar' ]

	 package main;

	 my $obj = MyObject->new( foo => "Foozle", bar => "Bozzle" );
	 print $obj->foo();

       This document describes the various subclasses of Class::MakeMethods
       included	under the Basic::* namespace, and the method types each	one

       The Basic subclasses provide stripped-down method-generation

       Subroutines are generated as closures bound to each method name.

   Calling Conventions
       When you	"use" a	subclass of this package, the method declarations you
       provide as arguments cause subroutines to be generated and installed in
       your module. You	can also omit the arguments to "use" and instead make
       methods at runtime by passing the declarations to a subsequent call to

       You may include any number of declarations in each call to "use"	or
       "make()". If methods with the same name already exist, earlier calls to
       "use" or	"make()" win over later	ones, but within each call, later
       declarations superceed earlier ones.

       You can install methods in a different package by passing "-TargetClass
       => package" as your first arguments to "use" or "make".

       See "USAGE" in Class::MakeMethods for more details.

   Declaration Syntax
       The following types of declarations are supported:

       o   generator_type => 'method_name'

       o   generator_type => 'name_1 name_2...'

       o   generator_type => [ 'name_1', 'name_2', ...]

       For a list of the supported values of generator_type, see "BASIC
       CLASSES"	in Class::MakeMethods::Docs::Catalog, or the documentation for
       each subclass.

       For each	method name you	provide, a subroutine of the indicated type
       will be generated and installed under that name in your module.

       Method names should start with a	letter,	followed by zero or more
       letters,	numbers, or underscores.

       See Class::MakeMethods for general information about this distribution.

       For distribution, installation, support,	copyright and license
       information, see	Class::MakeMethods::Docs::ReadMe.
