in reply to OOP: How to construct multiple instances of a class at once

Moose, of course, has a “getter/setter subroutine” notion, which is very sugar-y.   But you can easily enough do this on your own.   I often define an internal-use-only subroutine, named something like _getBlah (the “_” being my nomenclature for “for internal use only”) which determines if this-or-that information needs to be fetched and if necessary fetches it ... then (in any case) returns $self.   This allows it to be used as a “pass-thru method” in the getter/setter methods, e.g. return $self->_getUserInfo->{'user_name'};.   (Where “$self” is my habitual name for the local variable that refers to “me.”)

[Lady_Aleena]: Hello everyone. I'm having a blonde moment. I can push an array to an array, right? push @to_array, @another_array;
[shmem]: of course
[shmem]: the members of @another_array are conflated to @array
[shmem]: try it out:
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, thanks. I'm am way out of practice.
[shmem]: perl -lE '@foo = (0..3);@bar = (4..7); push @foo,@bar; say for @foo'
[Lady_Aleena]: shmem, I feel like an idiot for forgetting something so basic.
shmem puts a big cauldron of "silly con charme" on the table in the refectorium
