perl-specio 0.38 Classes for representing type constraints and coercion

The Specio distribution provides classes for representing type constraints and coercion, along with syntax sugar for declaring them. Note that this is not a proper type system for Perl. Nothing in this distribution will magically make the Perl interpreter start checking a value's type on assignment to a variable. In fact, there's no built-in way to apply a type to a variable at all. Instead, you can explicitly check a value against a type, and optionally coerce values to that type.
