in reply to what would you like to see in perl5.12?

Seems like you could roll your own UNIVERSAL::do to get pretty close to your second want.
use strict; use warnings; package UNIVERSAL; # Couldn't decide which syntax would be more likeable. sub do { my $ob = shift; my $method = shift; $ob->$method(@_); } sub do2 { my $ob = shift; my $method = shift; sub { $ob->$method(@_) }; } package U; sub voo { my $ob = shift; print "Called with @_\n"; } sub new { return bless {}; } package main; my $foo = U->new(); $foo->do('v'.'oo', 1..3); $foo->do2('v'.'oo')->(1..3);
Not really profound, but it gives me an excuse to say, "Now go do that $foo->do that U::do so well!"

Update: lodin points out that this is pretty close to UNIVERSAL::can. Which it is. Except you'd have to put the object back in the arg list:
