in reply to OO Perl and AUTOLOAD

I would not use an AUTOLOAD for this. I would follow the strategy of typeglobbing closures that I give at Re: More then one AUTOLOAD in a class hierarchy.. For one discussion of how AUTOLOAD and OO don't always play ball together see Why breaking can() is acceptable. The hope that I had of making them play that I discuss there didn't work out, see Detecting function vs method in an AUTOLOAD? for why not. (Without solving that problem I'm not going to release a module on CPAN that creates a UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD! But hey, I just realized that I could install the AUTOLOAD elsewhere...hmmm...)

UPDATE: That realization is now Class::AutoloadCAN.

[Eily]: and you can overload "0+" rather than bool, as numification is used instead of stringification in boolean context when available
