Obfuscated accessor

by bluescreen (Friar)
on Jan 27, 2009 at 20:16 UTC ( #739329=snippet: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Description: I was thinking if there any chance to write an accessor in just one line, and I came up with the following code. Of course I wouldn't use in a real project because its unreadable but it might worth sharing. The good thing is just replacing subroutine name creates a new accessor.
sub methodA { $_ = (caller(0))[3];s/.*\://; @_ > 1 ? $_[0]->{$_} = $_[
+1] : $_[0]->{$_} };
