in reply to Re^5: Indirect variable name
in thread Indirect variable name

In other words $$v->flag is not being dereferenced and the method called, as I incorrectly assumed.

Thanks for all the help.

    I'm confused ... do you really want to do
    print Util::Stuff::aaa1->flag();
    or rather
    print Util::Stuff::aaa1::flag();
    in other words, are you importing moduls or classes ? I understood simple moduls...

    Does flag() need to know, in which package he was called?

    UPDATE: you may want to have a look into perlboot if you don't know the difference... perl isn't a language one can master with try and error hacking ...

      I stumbled across this only six months later, and I can't help wondering: What language is there better suited to trial-and-error manipulations? Certainly, after consulting the camel books for various basics, I learned a huge amount of what I know by experimenting and finding interesting and unexpected failures.
        Well, you will learn a "a huge amount ... by experimenting" in all languages!

        But IMHO all these interwoven huffmancoded syntaxfeatures of Perl can only be masterd by reading the fucking manuals.

        From what I know ... Javascript! (with some exceptions)

        I don't really master Python, from what I've seen it's very orthogonal.
