MooseX::Aliases(3)    User Contributed Perl Documentation   MooseX::Aliases(3)

NAME
       MooseX::Aliases - easy aliasing of methods and attributes in Moose

VERSION
       version 0.11

SYNOPSIS
	   package MyApp;
	   use Moose;
	   use MooseX::Aliases;

	   has this => (
	       isa   =>	'Str',
	       is    =>	'rw',
	       alias =>	'that',
	   );

	   sub foo { my	$self =	shift; print $self->that }
	   alias bar =>	'foo';

	   my $o = MyApp->new();
	   $o->this('Hello World');
	   $o->bar; # prints 'Hello World'

       or

	   package MyApp::Role;
	   use Moose::Role;
	   use MooseX::Aliases;

	   has this => (
	       isa   =>	'Str',
	       is    =>	'rw',
	       alias =>	'that',
	   );

	   sub foo { my	$self =	shift; print $self->that }
	   alias bar =>	'foo';

DESCRIPTION
       The MooseX::Aliases module will allow you to quickly alias methods in
       Moose. It provides an alias parameter for "has()" to generate aliased
       accessors as well as the	standard ones. Attributes can also be
       initialized in the constructor via their	aliased	names.

       You can create more than	one alias at once by passing a arrayref:

	   has ip_addr => (
	       alias =>	[ qw(ipAddr ip)	],
	   );

FUNCTIONS
   alias ALIAS METHODNAME
       Installs	ALIAS as a method that is aliased to the method	METHODNAME.

ALIASING VERSUS	OTHER MOOSE FEATURES
   Aliasing versus inheritance
	   {
	       package Parent;
	       use Moose;
	       use MooseX::Aliases;
	       sub method1 { "A" }
	       alias method2 =>	"method1";
	   }

	   {
	       package Child1;
	       use Moose;
	       extends "Parent";
	       sub method1 { "B" }
	   }

	   {
	       package Child2;
	       use Moose;
	       extends "Parent";
	       sub method2 { "C" }
	   }

       In the example above, Child1 overrides the method using its original
       name ("method1"). As a result, calling "method1"	or "method2" returns
       "B". Child2 overrides the method	using its alias	("method2"). As	a
       result, calling "method2" returns "C", but calling "method1" falls
       through to the parent class, so returns "A".

   Aliasing versus method modifiers
	   {
	       package Class1;
	       use Moose;
	       use MooseX::Aliases;
	       sub method1 { "A" }
	       alias method2 =>	"method1";
	       around method1 => sub { "B" };
	   }

	   {
	       package Class2;
	       use Moose;
	       use MooseX::Aliases;
	       sub method1 { "A" }
	       alias method2 =>	"method1";
	       around method2 => sub { "B" };
	   }

       In the example above, Class1's around modifier modifies the method
       using its original name.	As a result, both "method1" and	"method2"
       return "B". Class2's around modifier modifies the alias,	so "method2"
       returns "B", but	"method1" continues to return "A".
