NAME
    Aspect-Oriented Perl - Aspect-oriented programming in pure Perl

DESCRIPTION
  Introduction to AOP

    Aspect-oriented Programming (AOP) is a programming methodology developed
    by Xerox PARC. The basic idea is that in complex class systems there are
    certain aspects or behaviors that cannot normally be expressed in a
    coherent, concise and precise way. One example of such aspects are
    design patterns, which combine various kinds of classes to produce a
    common type of behavior.

    Aspects in Perl provide:

    *   Dynamic enabling and disabling of aspects at run-time

    *   Modular aspects for prepackaged functionality

    See `Aspect::Intro' for an introduction to aspect-oriented programming.
    See `Aspect::Overview' for an overview of the modules and classes that
    comprise this distribution. See `Aspect::Ideas' for ideas on future
    developments. See `Aspect::Cookbook' for aspect-oriented recipes for
    common situations. See the individual modules' manpages for information
    on how to use and implement aspects.

LIMITATIONS
    *   Many types of join points and pointcuts remain unimplemented.

    *   Performance may suffer for aspects affecting a wide range of join
        points.

PREREQUISITES
    `Aspect' requires the following modules, which can be obtained from
    CPAN:

      Class::MethodMaker
      Hook::LexWrap
      IO::Scalar

    If you install `Aspect' from the CPAN shell, these modules will, if
    necessary, be installed automatically as well.

INSTALLATION
    It's all pure Perl, so just put the .pm files in their appropriate local
    Perl subdirectories.

    The easiest way to install this distribution is using the standard build
    process for Perl modules:

      perl Makefile.PL
      make
      make test
      make install

    Or you could use the CPAN shell, as described in the `CPAN' module
    documentation.

CHANGES AND FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
    This `README' refers to version 0.06. For details of changes, refer to
    the file `Changes'.

    Future versions will provide new types of join points, pointcuts and
    modular aspects. Stability and performance is also an ongoing concern.
    See `Aspect::Ideas' for an overview of these ideas.

CHANGES IN VERSION 0.06
    *   added `around()' function to `Aspect'

    *   Added `Attribute::Profiled'

    *   added `Aspect::Attribute' interface to creating advice

    *   made `Aspect::Advice''s `enable()' and `disable()' return `$self'

    *   added cookbook example callflow_attr.pl

    *   added cookbook recipes for bounds checking and change tracking, plus
        sample programs

AVAILABILITY
    `Aspect' has been uploaded to the CPAN; in any case it is available
    from:
