NAME

Class::MOP::Module - Module Meta Object  

VERSION

version 2.2011  

DESCRIPTION

A module is essentially a Class::MOP::Package with metadata, in our case the version and authority.  

INHERITANCE

Class::MOP::Module is a subclass of Class::MOP::Package.  

METHODS

 

Class::MOP::Module->create($package, %options)

Overrides "create" from Class::MOP::Package to provide these additional options:
"version"
A version number, to be installed in the $VERSION package global variable.
"authority"
An authority, to be installed in the $AUTHORITY package global variable.

This is a legacy field and its use is not recommended.

 

$metamodule->version

This is a read-only attribute which returns the $VERSION of the package, if one exists.  

$metamodule->authority

This is a read-only attribute which returns the $AUTHORITY of the package, if one exists.  

$metamodule->identifier

This constructs a string which combines the name, version and authority.  

Class::MOP::Module->meta

This will return a Class::MOP::Class instance for this class.
