Holy crap, we just had a useful and cordial conversation on a Web Forum. No less we end both appreciating the other's view point but respectfully disagreeing with them. We're so gonna get kicked off Perl Monks for this.
More seriously, yes I'm much more of a Theory oriented person. I like knowing the grand unifying principles and I find that the details of Perl deals with OO are messy and inconsistent when you get based the very very broad strokes that in Perl an Object is just a blessed reference to a data-structure.
I can however fully appreciate that for some people understanding the mechanics of *how* Perl puts things together is more important to their grasping of the whole kit and caboodle than the abstract principles. I'm glad that we can at least come to agreement on the fact that we're different, and thus have different needs and expectations out of the tools we use (be it Perl, Moose, or Damian's book).
