in thread RFC: A Beginners Guide to Fuzzy Rules-Based Systems

I'm sorry, but after many years of using many languages, I am not at all inclined to consider $f = Foo->new() as if it were a method on the type. I will continue to use $f = new Foo() as if it were an operator built into the language, because it feels more literate and readable.

Even with the same sort of bugs, I don't see a lot of people clamoring for a shift to $fh->print @list syntax.

    I'm sorry, but after many years of using many languages, I am not at all inclined to consider $f = Foo->new() as if it were a method on the type.

    What does how other languages work have to do with how Perl works? In Perl, it's a class method. It's not a keyword.

    Okay, but good luck debugging it when it fails in weird and unexpected ways.

    Even with the same sort of bugs, I don't see a lot of people clamoring for a shift to $fh->print @list syntax.

    I suspect you don't know why the indirect object notation can fail then. It's a lot more difficult to call print with filehandle and a bareword as arguments, but PBP suggests instead print {$fh} @list.
