in thread Does this ctor make sense?

No, I'm not talking about the package. I know the Package can be omitted. I'm just not sure whether the returned blessed Hash reference is the same thing with the object returned by bless, which should be the return value of new.

    If I understand your question right, you are asking about something like this:
    my $this = bless $other, "ClassName";
    and, you want to know if "$this" is the same as "$other".

    From "perldoc -f bless",
       ...it returns the reference for convenience

    So - Yes - it is the same, and No - it is not necessary to capture the returned object from 'bless'.

                 Most people believe that if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
            Engineers believe that if it ain't broke, it doesn't have enough features yet.

      Exactly. Thanks!
