"Spiffy" is a framework and methodology for doing object oriented (OO)
programming in Perl. 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.
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. 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 the base class of the basest class in your
project, Spiffy will automatically pass all of its magic to all of your
subclasses. You may eventually forget that you're even using it!
