In some ways, OOP was “grafted onto” Perl, particularly by means of the verb, bless, which sets a “blessed” flag and associates the object with a “class (equals package ...) name,” so that when you use the method-call (->) syntax, Perl knows what to do.   Most other programming languages “hide” the mechanics of “how OOP actually works” far more thoroughly than Perl does, and if you cut your teeth in one of those camps it will seem quite strange.   Yet, this is by design.

  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
