Perl - Is it an OO Languageby krisahoch (Deacon)
|on Aug 26, 2002 at 17:38 UTC||Need Help??|
I have been trying to learn how to use Perl for a little over four months now. I can do; simple scripting, class creation, module usage. I have been learning alot of new things and tricks as well. My next task is to learn how do Object Oriented programming, and I want to use Perl to learn with.
...but is Perl an Objected Oriented Programming Language?
There are two main computer science guru's in my shop. I will use GURU_01, and GURU_02 as their labels. They both have loads of experiance and an awesome amount of knowledge to share. GURU_01 says that Perl is NOT an OO language, and should only be used as a 'glue' scripting language. GURU_02 says he doesn't know enough about Perl to make a descision. GURU_02 also says that there are four elements that make up an Object Oriented Language; Inheritance, Abstraction, PolyMorphism, and Encapsulation
I want to thank everyone in advance for their constructive critisim. I do not mind being RTFM'd, just please point me the the FM;)
