Okay. So am I right in thinking that the objection only really applies if the sub in question is a method of a class and therefore break when called via the subclass?


Examine what is said, not who speaks.

The 7th Rule of perl club is -- pearl clubs are easily damaged. Use a diamond club instead.

    Im not sure which objection you mean exactly. But my original point applies to both OO and classical-imperative programming. Basically its "dont try to out-smart your user". Its usually unnecessary given the nature of Perl, and often a PITA to work around when you find out that you the user is smarter than the original programmer anyway.
