in reply to OOP: Plugin Style Development

As you've probably noticed, perl doesn't have a formal concept of an "interface" like say, java or COM. There is no way to guarantee a subclass will ALWAYS follow the right behavior. Unlike "bondage & discipline" languages, perl trusts programmers to do the right thing.

For examples of perl modules with plugin type abilities see DBI or XML::SAX.
