       Class::MakeMethods::Composite - Make extensible compound methods


         package MyObject;
         use Class::MakeMethods::Composite::Hash (
           new => 'new',
           scalar => [ 'foo', 'bar' ],
           array => 'my_list',
           hash => 'my_index',


       This document describes the various subclasses of Class::MakeMethods included under the
       Composite::* namespace, and the method types each one provides.

       The Composite subclasses provide a parameterized set of method-generation implementations.

       Subroutines are generated as closures bound to a hash containing the method name and
       additional parameters, including the arrays of subroutine references that will provide the
       method's functionality.

   Calling Conventions
       When you "use" this package, the method names you provide as arguments cause subroutines
       to be generated and installed in your module.

       See "Calling Conventions" in Class::MakeMethods::Standard for more information.

   Declaration Syntax
       To declare methods, pass in pairs of a method-type name followed by one or more method

       Valid method-type names for this package are listed in "METHOD GENERATOR TYPES".

       See "Declaration Syntax" in Class::MakeMethods::Standard and "Parameter Syntax" in
       Class::MakeMethods::Standard for more information.

   About Composite Methods
       The methods generated by Class::MakeMethods::Composite are assembled from groups of
       "fragment" subroutines, each of which provides some aspect of the method's behavior.

       You can add pre- and post- operations to any composite method.

         package MyObject;
         use Class::MakeMethods::Composite::Hash (
           new => 'new',
           scalar => [
             'foo' => {
               'pre_rules' => [
                 sub {
                   # Don't automatically convert list to array-ref
                   croak "Too many arguments" if ( scalar @_ > 2 );
               'post_rules' => [
                 sub {
                   # Don't let anyone see my credit card number!
                   ${(pop)->{result}} =~ s/\d{13,16}/****/g;
