MakeMethods::Template:UsereContributed PeMakeMethods::Template::Inheritable(3)

NAME
       Class::MakeMethods::Template::Inheritable - Overridable data

SYNOPSIS
	 package MyClass;

	 use Class::MakeMethods( 'Template::Inheritable:scalar'	=> 'foo' );
	 # We now have an accessor method for an "inheritable" scalar value

	 MyClass->foo( 'Foozle'	);   # Set a class-wide	value
	 print MyClass->foo();	     # Retrieve	class-wide value

	 my $obj = MyClass->new(...);
	 print $obj->foo();	     # All instances "inherit" that value...

	 $obj->foo( 'Foible' );	     # until you set a value for an instance.
	 print $obj->foo();	     # This now	finds object-specific value.
	 ...

	 package MySubClass;
	 @ISA =	'MyClass';

	 print MySubClass->foo();    # Intially	same as	superclass,
	 MySubClass->foo('Foobar');  # but overridable per subclass,
	 print $subclass_obj->foo(); # and shared by its instances
	 $subclass_obj->foo('Fosil');# until you override them...
	 ...

DESCRIPTION
       The MakeMethods subclass	provides accessor methods that search an
       inheritance tree	to find	a value. This allows you to set	a shared or
       default value for a given class,	and optionally override	it in a
       subclass.

   Standard Methods
       The following methods from Generic should be supported:

	 scalar
	 string
	 string_index (?)
	 number
	 boolean (?)
	 bits (?)
	 array (?)
	 hash (?)
	 tiedhash (?)
	 hash_of_arrays	(?)
	 object	(?)
	 instance (?)
	 array_of_objects (?)
	 code (?)
	 code_or_scalar	(?)

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template::Generic for the interfaces and
       behaviors of these method types.

       The items marked	with a * above are specifically	defined	in this
       package,	whereas	the others are formed automatically by the interaction
       of this package's generic settings with the code	templates provided by
       the Generic superclass.

       The items marked	with a ? above have not	been tested sufficiently;
       please inform the author	if they	do not function	as you would expect.

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

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template	for more about this family of
       subclasses.

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template::Generic for information about the
       various accessor	interfaces subclassed herein.

       If you just need	scalar accessors, see Class::Data::Inheritable for a
       very elegant and	efficient implementation.
