NAME
       curry - Create automatic curried method call closures for any class or
       object

SYNOPSIS
         use curry;

         my $code = $obj->curry::frobnicate('foo');

       is equivalent to:

         my $code = sub { $obj->frobnicate(foo => @_) };

       Additionally,

         use curry::weak;

         my $code = $obj->curry::weak::frobnicate('foo');

       is equivalent to:

         my $code = do {
           Scalar::Util::weaken(my $weak_obj = $obj);
           sub {
             return unless $weak_obj; # in case it already went away
             $weak_obj->frobnicate(foo => @_)
           };
         };

       If you want to pass a weakened copy of an object to a coderef, use the
       $weak  package variable:

        use curry::weak;

        my $code = $self->$curry::weak(sub {
         my ($self, @args) = @_;
         print "$self must still be alive, because we were called (with @args)\n";
        }, 'xyz');

       which is much the same as:

        my $code = do {
         my $sub = sub {
          my ($self, @args) = @_;
          print "$self must still be alive, because we were called (with @args)\n";
         };
         Scalar::Util::weaken(my $weak_obj = $self);
         sub {
          return unless $weak_obj; # in case it already went away
          $sub->($weak_obj, 'xyz', @_);
         }
        };

       There's an equivalent - but somewhat less useful -  $curry  package
       variable:

        use curry;

        my $code = $self->$curry::curry(sub {
         my ($self, $var) = @_;
         print "The stashed value from our ->something method call was $var\n";
        }, $self->something('complicated'));

       Both of these methods can also be used if your scalar is a method name,
       rather than a coderef.

        use curry;

        my $code = $self->$curry::curry($methodname, $self->something('complicated'));

RATIONALE
       How many times have you written

         sub { $obj->something($some, $args, @_) }

       or worse still needed to weaken it and had to check and re-check your
       code to be sure you weren't closing over things the wrong way?

       Right. That's why I wrote this.
