module for opaque, extensible XS pointer backed objects using sv_magic

XS::Object::Magic provides a way of associating structs with Perl space objects designed to supercede Perl's builtin "T_PTROBJ" with something that is designed to be:

  • extensible: The association of the pointer using "sv_magicext"

can be done on any data type, so you can associate C structs with any representation type. This means that you can add pointers to any object (hand coded, Moose or otherwise), while still having instance data in regular hashes. * opaque: The C pointer is neither visible nor modifiable from Perl space. This prevents accidental corruption which could lead to segfaults using "T_PTROBJ" (e.g. "$$ptr_obj = 0").
