perldoc Moose::Manual::Delegation calls it "Attribute delegation", but actually you're not delegating attributes. Instead, you are delegating method calls to an attribute of your class. So this is what you are missing: Calling Class->new simply isn't calling $object->thing underneath. If you add MooseX::StrictConstructor to your package Class, it will barf at you saying Found unknown attribute(s) init_arg passed to the constructor: thing BUILD or BUILDARGS can help to achieve what you're trying to do. -- Cheers, haj
