in reply to Remove bless reference or class/package name from method arguments

May I ask, if it isn't tied to the class, why is it a method in the first place?

    Static methods have a long history in OOP. Just because it operates at the level of the class without referencing any details of a specific instance doesn't mean it's not tied to the class.

      Alright then. I think I still wouldn't want to do this though, but merely out of maintainability issues. Foo::bar and Foo->bar are not the same, and I wouldn't expect them to be. After all, if you'd want to make a method that accepts an instance as first argument as the invocant, it wouldn't work anymore.

[msh210]: About time... last time I was right was... I don't even remember when.
[shmem]: perl -e 'warn "test$/", ^@^ '
[Eily]: well, at least it's right about warn doing the same thing as die :)
[shmem]: same with undef as last element
[msh210]: oh, good point. It's the best kind of correct
[shmem]: msh210: but I'd not call it a lie outright. That's when you do know the truth.
[msh210]: I don't have sendmail (I'm on MS Windows), so does one of you think you can report the bug?
[shmem]: msh210: 'tis about time to tell the sad truth to perl5porters - via perlbug
[msh210]: probably whoever wrote that actually knows the truth
[shmem]: msh210: you can save the perlbug text in a file and send that via your mail agent of choice
