Answer: How do I reference methods?

you can use the UNIVERSAL::can method:

my $object = Ojbect->new; # normal call $object->call(); # get ref my $ref = $object->can('call'); $ref->($object); # use reference..

This will also follow normal inheritance rules.

Note: you probably need to use the object you want to call as the first argument, because normal object methods expect $self to be the first arguments. (that's what $object->call() does anyway)...
