Perl doesn't have true private methods. Underscores are merely a convention to indicate that a sub is intended for internal use only.

It is possible to create do-it-yourself private subs by checking caller within a sub and then calling die if the caller is outside your module. Though this will have a performance impact if you do it a lot, and is of questionable benefit.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    A simpler alternative to caller would be:

    my $private = sub { ... };

      True; that slipped my mind (even though I use the technique occasionally). These things are mostly circumventable (Scope::Upper for caller, PadWalker for lexical coderefs, etc), but perhaps the lexical subs coming in Perl 5.18 will be different.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
