( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I've been avoiding naming it because I'm really interested more in high level thoughts about process, procedure, and best practices around recreating an existing CPAN module with an OO interface, as opposed to the details of the module itself.

I'd really like to hear more thoughts and recommendations on how to handle this in the general sense. Is it best to combine the procedural and OO interface into a single package? Or have them in separate packages? Why is one better? Or is there no real consensus on this, and no real advantage or disadvantage to either method?

However, for the sake of completeness, the module is Net::Statsd. It uses a pair of package variables to set the destination host/port, and I have a need to for multiple separate destinations.

    Lady_Aleena was checking #cbstream and saw the big announcement.
    [marioroy]: Tie::IxHash can be shared. Also similar modules. I cannot wait to post a solution sharing Tie::File and iterating among workers.
    [marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Yes, will post something with all the new features. Parallel with few lines of code.
    [marioroy]: Yes, will do for PM. I love PM.
    Lady_Aleena ponders a meditation of her own, but it would be on a far far less important topic.
    [marioroy]: I'm hoping to have a release in about a week's time.

    marioroy MCE isn't important by any means. Just wanted to complete this task. Hobo needed more love and MCE::Shared as well. It wasn't easy at all.
