Class::Spiffy is a framework and methodology for doing object oriented
programming in Perl. Class::Spiffy combines the best parts of,, and into one magic foundation class. It attempts to
fix all the nits and warts of traditional Perl OO, in a clean, straightforward
and (perhaps someday) standard way.
Class::Spiffy borrows ideas from other OO languages like Python, Ruby, Java
and Perl 6. It also adds a few tricks of its own.
If you take a look on CPAN, there are a ton of OO related modules. When
starting a new project, you need to pick the set of modules that makes most
sense, and then you need to use those modules in each of your classes.
Class::Spiffy, on the other hand, has everything you'll probably need in one
module, and you only need to use it once in one of your classes. If you make
Class::Spiffy the base class of the basest class in your project,
Class::Spiffy will automatically pass all of its magic to all of your
subclasses. You may eventually forget that you're even using it!
The most striking difference between Class::Spiffy and other Perl object
oriented base classes, is that it has the ability to export things. If you
create a subclass of Class::Spiffy, all the things that Class::Spiffy exports
will automatically be exported by your subclass, in addition to any more
things that you want to export. And if someone creates a subclass of your
subclass, all of those things will be exported automatically, and so on. Think
of it as "Inherited Exportation", and it uses the familiar
specification syntax.
