Class building as simple as it gets

There’s a whole bunch of class builders out there. In fact, creating a class builder seems to be something of a rite of passage this is my fifth, at least.

Unfortunately, most of the time I want a class builder I’m in a hurry and sketching out lots of fairly simple data classes with fairly simple structure, mostly just read-only accessors, and that’s about it.

Often this is for code that won’t end up on CPAN, so adding a small dependency doesn’t matter much. I just want to be able to define these classes FAST.

By which I mean LESS typing than writing them by hand, not more. And I don’t need all those weird complex features that bloat out the code and take over the whole way I build modules.

And so, I present yet another member of the Tiny family of modules, ObjectTiny.
