       Class::MakeMethods::Emulator - Demonstrate class-generator equivalency

	 # Equivalent to use Class::Singleton;
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::Singleton;

	 # Equivalent to use Class::Struct;
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::Struct;
	 struct	( ... );

	 # Equivalent to use Class::MethodMaker( ... );
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::MethodMaker(	... );

	 # Equivalent to use base 'Class::Inheritable';
	 use base 'Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::Inheritable';
	 MyClass->mk_classdata(	... );

	 # Equivalent to use base 'Class::AccessorFast';
	 use base 'Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::AccessorFast';
	 MyClass->mk_accessors(qw(this that whatever));

	 # Equivalent to use accessors(	... );
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::accessors( ... );

	 # Equivalent to use mcoder( ... );
	 use Class::MakeMethods::Emulator::mcoder( ... );

       In several cases, Class::MakeMethods provides functionality closely
       equivalent to that of an	existing module, and it	is simple to map the
       existing	module's interface to that of Class::MakeMethods.

       Class::MakeMethods::Emulator provides emulators for Class::MethodMaker,
       Class::Accessor::Fast, Class::Data::Inheritable,	Class::Singleton,
       Class::Struct, accessors, and mcoder, each of which passes the original
       module's	test suite, usually requiring only the addition	of a a single
       line to each test, activating the emulation module.

       Beyond demonstrating compatibility, these emulators also	generally
       indicate	the changes needed to switch to	direct use of
       Class::MakeMethods functionality, illustrate commonalities between the
       various modules,	and serve as a source for new ideas that can be
       integrated into Class::MakeMethods.

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