"Default" methodby v_melnik (Scribe)
|on Oct 08, 2014 at 12:15 UTC||Need Help??|
v_melnik has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I saw a cool trick that XML::LibXML, Throwable and some other libraries can do: when you try to get the value of the variable containing a reference to the object, you get the result of calling one of its' methods (for example as_string() instead of "SomeClass=HASH(0xdeadbeef)".
How to do that?
UPD: Thank you for replies, the "overload" pragma is exactly what I need!
