in reply to Pointers to member functions

What about:

$meth = $obj->can($method_name); $meth->($obj, @args);

    Also note that using a function reference with the method syntax works just fine. Consider the following example where an unnamed method is called from an object in a class with no methods of its own:
    my $foo = bless {}, "bar"; my $meth = sub {shift; print shift}; $foo->$meth("Sneaky");
    (Yeah, I know you know that, but others might find it neat.)
