NAME

Method::Signatures - method and function declarations with signatures and no source filter

VERSION

20170211

SYNOPSIS

package Foo;

use Method::Signatures;

method new (%args) {
    return bless {%args}, $self;
}

# Can also get type checking if you like:

method set (Str $key, Int $val) {
    return $self->{$key} = $val;        # now you know $val is always an integer
}

DESCRIPTION

Provides two new keywords, func and method, so that you can write subroutines with signatures instead of having to spell out my $self = shift; my($thing) = @_

func is like sub but takes a signature where the prototype would normally go. This takes the place of my($foo, $bar) = @_ and does a whole lot more.

method is like func but specifically for making methods. It will automatically provide the invocant as $self (by default). No more my $self = shift.
