in reply to Module::Compile::TT

When I read through your example, Class::Accessor immediately came to mind, so I'm not sure what benefit a source filtering approach brings to this problem. There doesn't seem to be much documentation for Module::Compile::TT, so how else can be used e.g. can you use it to simulate macros?

    Accessors are just a clear example.

    Nowadays I use Moose for them, or if I can't then Class::Accessor.

    I needed tt for a set of methods that operate on two different classes in almost the same way. It's still just boilerplate code (the object that needed this code gen was a factory object with some convenience routines).

    As for macros - C preprocessor style ones, that is - you can use TT macros. See Template::Manual::Directives.
