tweaks to Perl::Tidy to support some syntactic sugar


There are a number of modules on CPAN that allow users to write their classes with a more "modern" syntax. These tools eliminate the need to shift off $self, can support type checking and offer other improvements. Unfortunately, they can break the support tools that the Perl community has come to rely on. This module attempts to work around those issues.

The module uses Perl::Tidy's "prefilter" and "postfilter" hooks to support "method" and "func" keywords, including the (possibly multi-line) parameter lists. This is quite an ugly hack, but it is the recommended method of supporting these new keywords. The resulting formatted code will leave the parameter lists untouched.

Perl::Tidy::Sweetened attempts to support the syntax outlined in the following modules, but most of the new syntax styles should work:
 * p5-mop
 * Method::Signatures::Simple
 * MooseX::Method::Signatures
 * MooseX::Declare
 * Moops
 * perl 5.20 signatures
 * Kavorka
