Dear Monks,

I come here with a simple problem: I need to add a timeout to a method call, and now think about the best way how to 'say' it. Well, I don't want to use named parameters for such a simple task.

Here the original call without timeout:

my $success = $deployer->extend_order_lease( $order, $end_date );

Well, I wrote a little sub which deals with the timeout, and called it like the following:

Number 1:

my $success = $self->do_method_with_timeout( $timeout, $deployer => extend_order_lease => ( $order, $end_date ) );

The => looks a little bit like the -> from the original call, but there are no pairs.

Number 2:

my $success = $self->do_method_with_timeout( $timeout, $deployer, 'extend_order_lease', $order, $end_date );

But there you don't see what belongs together...

Number 3:

my $success = $self->do_sub_with_timeout( sub { return $deployer->extend_order_lease( $order, $end_date ); }, $timeout, );

But the longer I look at those ways, the less I like them...

Please, could you help me and tell me how you would write it?

Best regards,
perl -e "s>>*F>e=>y)\*martinF)stronat)=>print,print v8."
