in reply to Answer: Why is it said that Perl does not implement true object orientation?
in thread object-oriented programming

Compile-time object type checks are actually orthogonal to OO. You may like strong typing or not but anyway its absense or presence in a programming language doesn't make it "more" OO. Case it point: Smalltalk which is often claimed to be a "true" OO language is a weak typed language.
