       VM::EC2::State::Reason - Object describing the reason for an EC2 instance state change


         use VM::EC2;

         $ec2      = VM::EC2->new(...);
         $instance = $ec2->describe_instances(-instance_id=>'i-12345');
         $reason   = $instance->reason;
         $code     = $reason->code;
         $message  = $reason->message;


       This object represents the reason that an Amazon EC2 instance underwent a state change. It
       is returned by calling the reason() method of VM::EC2::Instance.


       These object methods are supported:

        code           -- The state change reason code.
        message        -- The state change reason method.

       The following table lists the codes and messages (source:

          Code                                         Message
          ----                                         -------
        Server.SpotInstanceTermination       A Spot Instance was terminated due
                                             to an increase in the market price.

        Server.InternalError                 An internal error occurred during
                                             instance launch, resulting in termination.

        Server.InsufficientInstanceCapacity  There was insufficient instance capacity
                                             to satisfy the launch request.

        Client.InternalError                 A client error caused the instance to
                                             terminate on launch.

        Client.InstanceInitiatedShutdown     The instance initiated shutdown by a shutdown -h
                                             command issued from inside the instance.

        Client.UserInitiatedShutdown         The instance was shutdown by a user via an
                                             API call.

        Client.VolumeLimitExceeded           The volume limit was exceeded.

        Client.InvalidSnapshot.NotFound      The specified snapshot was not found.


       When used in a string context, this object will interpolate the message.
