Reflex::Role::Interval has method_start documented but not implemented. Using "auto_start => 1" it works fine, but with "auto_start => 0" there seems to be no way to start the timer. I'm trying to run a whole bunch of Interval timers, up to a couple thousand, and as quite a few will have the same interval I don't want them to expire all at the same time but spread out a bit. I thus need them to start after a random delay that I'm trying to achive with a temporary Reflex::Timeout created in BUILD and then disposed of after it has fired and started the Interval timer.

It turns out that method_repeat fulfills the same purpose, more or less. I implemented method_start anyway because the semantics are a little different, and using the right one at the right time is more efficient. commit d9d928cdf7fd182e0b0cc17ef9a303cbf7b94c85 Author: Rocco Caputo <> Date: Sun Apr 21 16:07:32 2013 -0400 [ 83718] Implement a start method for Reflex::Role::Interval. Pointed out by CPAN user MBETHKE.
