Programming with Moose

Moose is a distribution (set of modules), that constitute a new framework for Perl 5. It addresses many of the criticisms about Perl's object orientation (OO) implementation, and brings new light to crufty old perl syntax.

Moose was created by Stevan Little, the author of countless modules both useful and useless hosted on CPAN.[1]
