UNIVERSAL::moniker - Nicer names for your Perl modules/classes
Class names in Perl often don't sound great when spoken, or look good when written in prose. For this reason, we tend to say things like "customer" or "basket" when we are referring to "My::Site::User::Customer" or "My::Site::Shop::Basket". We thought it would be nice if our classes knew what we would prefer to call them. This module will add a "moniker" (and "plural_moniker") method to "UNIVERSAL", and so to every class or module. moniker $ob->moniker; Returns the moniker for $ob. So, if $ob->isa("Big::Scary::Animal"), "moniker" will return "animal". plural_moniker $ob->plural_moniker; Returns the plural moniker for $ob. So, if $ob->isa("Cephalopod::Octopus"), "plural_moniker" will return "octopuses". (You need to install Lingua::EN::Inflect for this to work.)
