in thread The world is not object oriented

I don't think that we are going to come to agreement on whether closures are objects.

No, probably not.

I don't think I really made this point very well above (which is my fault), but it's not that I put an absolute stamp on closures as objects. Rather, I think they can be used as a limited form of object, but they're not limited to OO, either.

----
I wanted to explore how Perl's closures can be manipulated, and ended up creating an object system by accident.

    Imagining this as a Venn diagram, what then, I wonder, would be an appropriate name for the field of endeavor and design that exists in the intersection?

    (I need to know so I can complete my OO model of OO-ish concepts...;)
