NAME

Class::Accessor::Fast - Faster, but less expandable, accessors

SYNOPSIS

DESCRIPTION

This is a faster but less expandable version of Class::Accessor. Class::Accessor's generated accessors require two method calls to accompish their task (one for the accessor, another for get() or set()). Class::Accessor::Fast eliminates calling set()/get() and does the access itself, resulting in a somewhat faster accessor.

The downside is that you can't easily alter the behavior of your accessors, nor can your subclasses. Of course, should you need this later, you can always swap out Class::Accessor::Fast for Class::Accessor.

Read the documentation for Class::Accessor for more info.
