That is what he's doing. We're discussing how to implement the Helper pattern. :-)

We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

    I'm not 100% it IS what is he doing. It doesn't hurt to explain it in more detail for others even if he does.

    Anyway here's some code that implements the method checking:

    # in package ShoppingCart @required_methods = qw(GetNext GetFirst Reset ...); sub initialize { my $self = shift; my $IO = shift; croak "The first parameter to 'new ShoppingCart' must be an IO objec +t!" unless ref $IO; foreach my $method (@required_methods) { croak("The IO object passed to 'new ShoppingCart' does not impleme +nt the necessary methods!") unless $IO->can($method); } $self->{IO} = $IO; } ...

    The test is not compile time, but currently it's the best you can get. AFAIK of course.
