Comprehensive inside-out object support module
ObjectInsideOut provides comprehensive support for implementing classes using the inside-out object model.
This module implements inside-out objects as anonymous scalar references that are blessed into a class with the scalar containing the ID for the object usually a sequence number. For Perl 5.8.3 and later, the scalar reference is set as read-only to prevent accidental modifications to the ID. Object data i.e., fields are stored within the class’s package in either arrays indexed by the object’s ID, or hashes keyed to the object’s ID.
