Documentation for method methods

Documentation for method methods, assembled from the following types:

role Metamodel::MethodContainer

From Metamodel::MethodContainer

(Metamodel::MethodContainer) method methods

method methods(Metamodel::MethodContainer: $obj:$all:$local)

Returns a list of public methods available on the class (which includes methods from superclasses and roles). By default this stops at the classes Cool, Any or Mu; to really get all methods, use the :all adverb. If :local is set, only methods declared directly in the class are returned.

class A {
    method x() { };
say A.^methods();                   # x 
say A.^methods(:all);               # x infinite defined ... 

The returned list contains objects of type Method, which you can use to introspect their signatures and call them.

Some introspection method-look-alikes like WHAT will not show up, although they are present in any Perl 6 object. They are handled at the grammar level and will likely remain so for bootstrap reasons.
