NAME

MooseX::StrictConstructor - Make your object constructors blow up on unknown attributes

CONTENTS

VERSION

version 0.19

SYNOPSIS



    package My::Class;

    use Moose;
    use MooseX::StrictConstructor;

    has size => ...;

    # then later ...

    # this blows up because color is not a known attribute
    My::Class->new( size => 5, color => blue );



DESCRIPTION

Simply loading this module makes your constructors strict. If your constructor is called with an attribute init argument that your class does not declare, then it calls Moose->throw_error(). This is a great way to catch small typos.

    Subverting Strictness

You may find yourself wanting to have your constructor accept a parameter which does not correspond to an attribute.

In that case, you’ll probably also be writing a BUILD() or BUILDARGS() method to deal with that parameter. In a BUILDARGS() method, you can simply make sure that this parameter is not included in the hash reference you return. Otherwise, in a BUILD() method, you can delete it from the hash reference of parameters.



  sub BUILD {
      my $self   = shift;
      my $params = shift;

      if ( delete $params->{do_something} ) {
          ...
      }
  }
