in reply to Confused on function call syntax

That code uses the non-preferred "indirect object" notation:
methodname classname (params);
where $self represents the classname, because it is blessed into that class.

The identical process is better accomplished by re-writing that as:

my $map = $self->match_maprow_by_hash ( $first );
See "Method Call Variations" and '"indirect object" notation' in "perldoc perlobj".

    Thank you! The more I studied it the more it appeared that was what was actually happening, but I couldn't find any documentation on that syntax, so I needed at least some reassurance; maybe this was a more complicated situation that just looked like method calls in simple cases, or something.
