in reply to My first stab at OO perl...

Very nice - and far better than my first (or indeed current) attempts at OO code. One query - Is it a good idea to have a get_total function which does the additon. My first instinct would be to make add_expenses and delete_expenses keep the _TOTAL up to date at all times. Any opinons on this?

    I thought about that, but I figured it would be less expensive to do the math only when I actually need the number, rather than every time I would have changed. I figure if I'm going to access the data through a method, I might as well have it generate it on the fly and not when I don't need it.
