I had the model for CODE attributes in mind which happen at compile time:

(excerpt from attributes )

3. Code: package X; sub foo : lvalue ; Effect: use attributes X => \&foo, "lvalue";

That's why Attribute::Handlers is putting such emphasis onto the compilation phase when the association happens.

but LEXICAL attributes seem to call import with each declaration at run-time (which is consistent with the fact that my has a compile and a run-time effect.)

2. Code: package Felis; my $cat : Nervous; Effect: use attributes (); attributes::->import(Felis => \$cat, "Nervous");

maybe Attribute::Handlers should be clearer about this?

(A disturbance in the Force happens)

Now more potential in using attributes I see ... ;-)

) to be more specific ... this behaviour means that the untie happens almost immediately after the tie, i.e. the potential for possible ugly side effects is practically zero.

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
