Methods that affect subsequently defined methods

Hi,

I want to implement methods like Ruby’s protected that will effect some
aspect of the subsequently defined methods. For example, I want write
sth like follows:

class Test
authorize_for :ROLE1, :ROLE2
def method1

end

def method2
  ...
end

authorize_for :ROLE3
def method3

end
end

In the def. on authorize_for method, I can use a global var to hold the
parameters passed and then use then in method_added callback.
However, once the class definition end, I no longer need those global
variables
and I couldn’t find a way to mark them for gc (set to nil).

I need a way to be informed about the end of the class definition. I
considered set_trace_func but because there is no way to chain or
restore trace funcs after set, so that is not really an option.

I also checked for class_added callback, but according to the Ruby list,
it’s been refused because of lack of concrete usage.

Is there any other way to accomplish this?

You might try facets annotations library.
