in thread Short routines matter more in OO?

If this is but one viewpoint, then it is a viewpoint that I like hearing from. :-)

I will have to think about that. I've found that code where I setting up a lot of handlers (often with closures) that my function length goes back up because one function creates several closely related small ones. Thinking about that in terms of managing coupling could explaing why I'm naturally inclined to group things the way that I do.

I also had a vaguely related thought at Pass by reference vs globals.

    I still have much thinking to do with regards to this notion. But I do think one of OO's non-explicitly recognized advantages is that of managing coupling. The object is an interface to a set of coupled code, relieving both the object writer and the object user from having to manage that aspect of code complexity themselves.

    And, one of OO's disadvantages is not recognizing this explicitly, because we then we could have much more meaningful discussions about such controversies as: Are getter/setter methods evil when used from outside the object? from inside the object? Should objects be divorced from their UI via a controller? encapsulate their UI? or provide proxy UI objects? How do we reconcile full encapsulation with inheritance?

[Corion]: Option a) would mean launching cmd.exe /k c:\path\to\ batchfile- launching-perl- script.cmd. Option b) would be to add pause as the last line of said batch file.
[LanX]: First day after holidays ... and already stressed by the fact that colleagues changed stuff without communication ... apparently I'm the only one trying to fight entropy
[Corion]: LanX: The command is always in the history if you typed it in before. If you didn't type the command into the command line, it will not be there. I think there is doskey which can stuff command lines into the history
LanX damns the cult of CB ;-)
[LanX]: please forget my last 3 posts
[LanX]: Yeah option a doesn't go into history
[LanX]: probably I need to teach the app to restart after C-c Kill
[Corion]: LanX: Maybe have an infinite-loop cmd file? Much easier than trying to manage that from within Perl IMO
[Corion]: Alternatively, relaunch the application from cron (or a Windows cron) every minute
