NAME

       Class::MethodMaker::V1Compat - V1 compatibility code for C::MM

SYNOPSIS

       This class is for internal implementation only.  It is not a public API.

DESCRIPTION

       Class::MethodMaker version 2 strives for backward-compatibility with version 1 as far as
       possible.  That is to say, classes built with version 1 should work with few if any
       changes.  However, the calling conventions for building new classes are significantly
       different: this is necessary to achieve a greater consistency of arguments.

       Version 2 takes all arguments within a single arrayref:

         use Class::MethodMaker
           [ scalar => 'a' ];

       If arguments are presented as a list, then Class::MethodMaker assumes that this is a
       version 1 call, and acts accordingly.  Version 1 arguments are passed and internally
       rephrased to version 2 arguments, and passed off to the version 2 engine.  Thus, the
       majority of version 1 calls can be upgraded to version 2 merely by rephrasing.  However,
       there are a number of behaviours that in version 1 that are internally inconsistent.
       These behaviours are mimicked in version 1 mode as far as possible, but are not
       reproducible in version 2 (to allow version 2 clients to rely on a more internally
       consistent interface).

   Version 2 Implementations
       The nearest equivalent to each 1 component (slot) available in version 2 is shown below
       using the indicated data-structures & options to create a component called "a" that mimics
       the V1 component behaviour as closely as possible:

       abstract
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ abstract => 'a' ];

       boolean
           Boolean is available as a backwards compatibility hack, but there is currently no V2
           equivalent.  It is likely that some replacement mechanism will be introduced in the
           future, but that it will be incompatible with the version 1 boolean.

       code
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ scalar => 'a' ];

           Let's face it, the v1 store-if-it's-a-coderef-else-retrieve semantics are rather
           broken.  How do you pass a coderef as argument to one of these?  It is on the TODO
           list to recognize code as fundamental restricted type (analogous to INTEGER), which
           would add in a *_invoke method.

       copy
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ copy => 'a' ];

           The v2 method is the same as v1.

       counter
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ scalar => [{-type => Class::MethodMaker::Constants::INTEGER}, 'a'] ];

       copy
       deep_copy
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ copy => [ -deep => 'a' ] ];

       get_concat
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ scalar => [{ -store_cb => sub {
                                             defined $_[1] ? ( defined $_[3] ?
                                                               "$_[3] $_[1]" : $_[1] )
                                                           : undef;
                                           }
                            },
                            'a' ]
               ];

       get_set
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ scalar => 'a' ];

       hash
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ hash => 'a' ];

       key_attrib
           Although v1 calls will continue to work, this is not supported in v2.

       key_with_create
           Although v1 calls will continue to work, this is not supported in v2.

       list
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ list => 'a' ];

           Note that the "*" method now sets the whole array if given arguments.

       method
           See "code".

       new
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ new => 'a' ];

       new_hash_init
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ new => [ -hash => 'a' ] ];

       new_hash_with_init
             use Class::MethodMaker
               [ new => [ -hash => -init => 'a' ] ];

       new_with_args
           Although v1 calls will continue to work, this is not supported in v2, for it is a
           trivial application of "new_with_init".

       new_with_init

               ];

             use Class::MethodMaker
