in reply to OO style question: how much information to hide?

I'd say that being able to write simpler code is a win. So:

  • Don't die nor warn (by default) on "deleting" a non-existant tag (even if there is some reason that it should be "impossible" for the tag to exist, such as the token being an end tag)
  • Have the "delete" method return what was deleted (just like delete does)
  • Have "add attribute" complain for end tags
So I could certainly see value in having an optional complaint emitted if you try to delete attributes from end tags (for those who want to detect if they are being "sloppy" in this respect as a check on the validity of their code). But I don't think that should be the default (in a module with "Simple" in the name).

Lady_Aleena was checking #cbstream and saw the big announcement.
[marioroy]: Tie::IxHash can be shared. Also similar modules. I cannot wait to post a solution sharing Tie::File and iterating among workers.
[marioroy]: Lady_Aleena Yes, will post something with all the new features. Parallel with few lines of code.
[marioroy]: Yes, will do for PM. I love PM.
Lady_Aleena ponders a meditation of her own, but it would be on a far far less important topic.
[marioroy]: I'm hoping to have a release in about a week's time.

marioroy MCE isn't important by any means. Just wanted to complete this task. Hobo needed more love and MCE::Shared as well. It wasn't easy at all.
