Subject: Why would you pass an argument to a builder?
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 599b
Moose::Cookbook::Recipe9 talks about builder methods and says... Also, as a bonus, we'll pass @_ through, so subclasses can override the method to pass additional options to the constructor. No example of why you'd do this is given, and it might imply to users that Moose will do something with it. It should be clarified with a common use case and moved into its own section to avoid muddling the subclassing discussion. If there is no common use case, it should be removed to avoid muddling the recipe. I guess to start... is there a good, common use case worth putting in the recipe?
Sorry, Google sent me to a really old copy of the Moose docs. Please ignore this.
