in reply to Your named arguments

At work we use Params::Check. Reasonable simple, and it does the job. The example in the documentation uses %hash, which I don't approve of. I use %args_in which covers the meaning nicely. Maybe %params_in would be even better.

    I use %args_in which covers the meaning nicely. Maybe %params_in would be even better.

    No, parameters are expected, while arguments are passed. The hash contains arguments, never parameters.

    Given foo => $bar, the parameter is "foo", and the argument is $bar, named by the name of the parameter.

    In Perl 6:

    sub foo ($foo, $bar) { # $foo and $bar are *parameters* # But in the sub itself, they represent the *arguments* ... } foo(42, 15); # positional arguments foo(foo => 42, bar => 15); # named arguments foo(bar => 15, foo => 42); # same thing :)
