Nah, I actually understand what it does (which is nothing useful). I just find it very annoying.
I don't disagree with you.
That's not the real problem, of course. The problem is that I need some kind of tool or something to track all these function calls. So far I'm doing it manually, and that's kind of difficult when there is stuff like ... I find it kind of unreadable even without promise.
Again, I don't disagree. I call it obfuscation through over-encapsulation.
The misguided attempt to gloss over moderately "difficult" perl syntax with myriad small, trivial named subroutines or methods. All it does is obscure the underlying algorithm; complicate maintenance and debugging; and throw performance to the dogs of dogma.
This is far simpler, clearer and way more efficient.
