NAME

       "Tangence::Meta::Class" - structure representing one "Tangence" class

DESCRIPTION

       This data structure object stores information about one Tangence class.  Once constructed
       and defined, such objects are immutable.

CONSTRUCTOR

   $class = Tangence::Meta::Class->new( name => $name )
       Returns a new instance representing the given name.

   $class->define( %args )
       Provides a definition for the class.

       methods => HASH
       events => HASH
       properties => HASH
               Optional HASH references containing metadata about methods, events and properties,
               as instances of Tangence::Meta::Method, Tangence::Meta::Event or
               Tangence::Meta::Property.

       superclasses => ARRAY
               Optional ARRAY reference containing superclasses as "Tangence::Meta::Class"
               references.

ACCESSORS

   $defined = $class->defined
       Returns true if a definintion for the class has been provided using "define".

   $name = $class->name
       Returns the name of the class

   $perlname = $class->perlname
       Returns the perl name of the class. This will be the Tangence name, with dots replaced by
       double colons ("::").

   @superclasses = $class->direct_superclasses
       Return the direct superclasses in a list of "Tangence::Meta::Class" references.

   $methods = $class->direct_methods
       Return the methods that this class directly defines (rather than inheriting from
       superclasses) as a HASH reference mapping names to Tangence::Meta::Method instances.

   $events = $class->direct_events
       Return the events that this class directly defines (rather than inheriting from
       superclasses) as a HASH reference mapping names to Tangence::Meta::Event instances.

   $properties = $class->direct_properties
       Return the properties that this class directly defines (rather than inheriting from
       superclasses) as a HASH reference mapping names to Tangence::Meta::Property instances.

AGGREGATE ACCESSORS

       The following accessors inspect the full inheritance tree of this class and all its
       superclasses

   @superclasses = $class->superclasses
       Return all the superclasses in a list of unique "Tangence::Meta::Class" references.

   $methods = $class->methods
       Return all the methods available to this class as a HASH reference mapping names to
       Tangence::Meta::Method instances.

   $method = $class->method( $name )
       Return the named method as a Tangence::Meta::Method instance, or "undef" if no such method
       exists.

   $events = $class->events
       Return all the events available to this class as a HASH reference mapping names to
       Tangence::Meta::Event instances.

   $event = $class->event( $name )
       Return the named event as a Tangence::Meta::Event instance, or "undef" if no such event
       exists.

   $properties = $class->properties
       Return all the properties available to this class as a HASH reference mapping names to
       Tangence::Meta::Property instances.

   $property = $class->property( $name )
       Return the named property as a Tangence::Meta::Property instance, or "undef" if no such
       property exists.
