To use perl's native stringification method you can just use the static method overload::Strval. As for how you specifically disable stringification for output, I don't think you can control this, so you might just want a couple of wrapper methods along the lines of
sub foo::print { my $obj = overload::Strval($_[0]); print "$obj: @_[1 .. $#_]"; } my $o = bless [] => 'foo'; $o->print('some output'); __output__ foo=ARRAY(0x1012116c): some output
Also be careful about what you're blessing as you can't bless constants e.g
perl -e 'bless \1' Modification of a read-only value attempted at -e line 1.
