in reply to OO search in objects

I wonder if there's a better way of doing it?

It depends... Assuming there are no duplicate names, I would create a hash once populated with the names as keys and the object refs as values.

my %objects_by_name; for (@obj_fw) { $objects_by_name{$_->name} = $_ }

or even better right when the objects are being created/given names.

From then on you get the objects by name from $objects_by_name{$name}
