module for fast prototype-based OO programming in Perl


Class:Prototyped provides for efficient and simple prototype-based programming in Perl. You can provide different subroutines for each object, and also have objects inherit their behavior and state from another object.

Class::Prototyped borrows heavily from the programming language Self. The structure of an object is inspected and modified through mirrors, which are created by calling "reflect" on an object or class that inherits from Class::Prototyped.

Prototype-based programming is most useful when the cleanest way for code to use a module is to subclass it, or when one finds oneself avoiding this by passing anonymous subroutines as parameters to "new". Prototype-based programming is also useful in situations that otherwise require storing anonymous subroutines in databases, configuration files, or text files, or when users of a module are expected to override subroutines to change its behabior.
