       Class::MakeMethods::Template::ClassInherit - Overridable class data


         package MyClass;

         use Class::MakeMethods( 'Template::ClassInherit:scalar' => 'foo' );
         # We now have an accessor method for an "inheritable" scalar value

         package main;

         MyClass->foo( 'Foozle' );   # Set a class-wide value
         print MyClass->foo();       # Retrieve class-wide value

         package MySubClass;
         @ISA = 'MyClass';

         print MySubClass->foo();    # Intially same as superclass,
         MySubClass->foo('Foobar');  # but overridable per subclass/


       The MakeMethods subclass provides accessor methods that search an inheritance tree to find
       a value. This allows you to set a shared or default value for a given class, and
       optionally override it in a subclass.

   Standard Methods
       The following methods from Generic should all be supported:

         string_index (?)
         bits (?)
         array (*)
         hash (*)
         tiedhash (?)
         hash_of_arrays (?)
         object (?)
         instance (?)
         array_of_objects (?)
         code (?)
         code_or_scalar (?)

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template::Generic for the interfaces and behaviors of these method

       The items marked with a * above are specifically defined in this package, whereas the
       others are formed automatically by the interaction of this package's generic settings with
       the code templates provided by the Generic superclass.

       The items marked with a ? above have not been tested sufficiently; please inform the
       author if they do not function as you would expect.


       See Class::MakeMethods for general information about this distribution.

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template for more about this family of subclasses.

       See Class::MakeMethods::Template::Generic for information about the various accessor
       interfaces subclassed herein.

       If you just need scalar accessors, see Class::Data::Inheritable for a very elegant and
       efficient implementation.
