On porting a Moose module

I have been meaning to write this post for a while, but between $work and getting sick I have not really had the brain capacity to do it. Being that I am still a little sick and $work is still busy, I am making no promises about the quality of this post.

In a previous blog post I mentioned that I was going to port my module Bread::Board to p5-mop which I managed to finish up about three weeks ago and then promised to write a post about my experience. Well better late then never, here is that post.

NOTE: if all the Bread::Board terminology gets tedious, skip down to the TL;DR at the end to read my conclusions.

About Stevan Little

user-pic I am the original author of Moose and am (again) working on the p5-mop project to bring some of the core features of Moose into the core. I am also conducting a thought experiment called Moe to see what an Ultra Modern Perl 5 would look like.
