in reply to Optimizing variable passing (code, peer review)

Have you considered making properties first-class Objects? This could lead to greatly simplified code. Consider
package EmmisiveColor; sub new { my $pkg = shift; return bless [ @_ ], $pkg; } sub as_string { my $self = shift; "emmisiveColor @$self" }
And so on for the other properties. Properties become easier to enumerate. You can do away with the switch entirely. Assuming you're doing so within the context of an object that holds properties, your snippet reduces to something like:
sub simple_properties { my $self = shift; my @propstrings = map { $_->as_string() } $self->properties(); return "appearance Appearance {\n" . " material Material {\n" . " ", join("\n ", @propstrings), "\n" . " }\n" . "}\n"; }

[Discipulus]: but i'm also animalist, so i' hirted by 1nickt's sig: The way forward always starts with a mammal test... grin..
[erix]: I might if I did remember. It's probably somewhere in the site docs
[uhClem]: I don't favor that sort of thing around here but the place for our politics is wherever we live.
[uhClem]: And besides, the objection to it was off-topic.
[Discipulus]: 1nickt hide signature is a positive action; i think is not a solution here
[erix]: my objection to sigs is just that they take screen space. ( Some monks would have *several* slogans underneath a 1-liner reply )
