Copy package Instance

ISAI student has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

This may be a very stupid question, but, none the less, I need an anwer to it. I have a certain module, which I have created. I create an an instance of it, it's name is $inst1. Then I want to create a copy of $inst1's internal data, accessed by $inst2. Now, the issue is, that to the best of my knowledge, $inst1 is just a pointer, so copying the pointer makes very little sense, for this usage. Is there a generic "copy instance" for PERL5.8 or above? Thanks,
