Description : Generate fast XS accessors without runtime compilation
Class::XSAccessor implements fast read, write and read/write accessors
in XS. Additionally, it can provide predicates such as has_foo() for
testing whether the attribute foo is defined in the object. It only
works with objects that are implemented as ordinary hashes.
The XS accessor methods were between 1.6 and 2.5 times faster than
typical pure-perl accessors in some simple benchmarking. If you
usually write clear code, a factor of two speed-up is a good estimate.
The package is a dependency of Padre 0.25 and will be maintained under
Debian Perl Group's felt hat.
