missing => 'Not found: %s', # errors, warnings, prompts, etc.
have_u => 'Have you %s my %s?',
volume => 'This %s goes up to %s',

# the rest of your module follows...
our $X = 10;
our $Y = 20;
sub whatever { ... }

# Other Badger::Class tricks
use Badger::Class 'class';

# compose a new class on the fly
->constant( max_volume => 10 )
->methods( about => sub {
"This amp goes up to " . shift->max_volume
} );

Amplifier->about; # This amp goes up to 10

# when you need that push over the cliff...
->constant( max_volume => 11 );

Nigels::Amplifier->about; # This amp goes up to 11

Badger::Class is a class metaprogramming module. It provides methods for defining, extending and manipulating object classes and related metadata in a relatively clean and simple way.

Using the Badger::Class module will automatically enable the strict and warnings pragmata in your module (thx Moose!). No exceptions. No questions asked. No answers given. It's for your own good.. .
