    You will need to learn about the arrow operator ->, for example in perlop, and/or one of the Perl object tutorials, or maybe the Modern Perl book.

    The methods of an object are traditionally documented in the respective class documentation. In your case, that's Path::Class.

      <pedantic>To be fair, Path::Class performs some minor misdirection, and the methods of interest are found in Path::Class::Dir and Path::Class::File. But your main point is obviously correct.</pedantic>

      #11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

        <pedantic>To be correct, “misdirection” isn’t the right word here.</pedantic>
