Module::Pluggable::Object - automatically give your module the ability to have plugins
Simple use Module::Pluggable -
my $finder = Module::Pluggable::Object->new(%opts);
print "My plugins are: ".join(", ", $finder->plugins)."\n";
Provides a simple but, hopefully, extensible way of having 'plugins' for
your module. Obviously this isn't going to be the be all and end all of
solutions but it works for me.
Essentially all it does is export a method into your namespace that
looks through a search path for .pm files and turn those into class names.
Optionally it instantiates those classes for you.
This object is wrapped by "Module::Pluggable". If you want to do something
odd or add non-general special features you're probably best to wrap this
and produce your own subclass.
See the "Module::Pluggable"
