in reply to Perl OOP

You should be aware that there are now two very-different language implementations which both call themselves “Perl®” – Perl-5 and Perl-6 – and the class-architecture is one of the areas of major extreme differences.   (In that Perl-6 actually has one.)   Please elaborate as to which version(s) you are learning and/or using.

    No, they do not both call themselves Perl. perl is Perl aka Perl 5. perl6 is Perl 6.

    Anyone learning perl6 will know it as such. Where do you come up with such bizarre statements?

    When was the last time anywhere you found someone confused about the two?

        You just need to stop thinking about Perl 5 and Perl 6 as being like versions, and start thinking of them as being like sequels.

        When Star Trek 6 came out, it didn't mean everybody was supposed to stop watching Star Trek 5.

    Gee, at least one of the two named books is free to read for programmers ... but then why would spammers like sundialsvc4 read books about perl programming
