The difficulty comes in when you don't know whether a method is returning the object it's working on, or a sub object.

Finaly an objection that I can understand and agree on. Thank you for at least pointing that out to me. If it was implied in the other parts of this discussion then I somehow missed that.

[thezip]: G'day all. Apparently Strawberry Perl has issues with deploying Spreadsheet::XLSX for Perl 5.24.1. I need this module to maintain compatability with an existing script. I'm new to Strawberry -- is there a safe way to manually deploy this?
