( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??

Suppose you wanted to do something like this to a family of related objects. How would you assign the anonymous function to be a method of each class? (I can do that trick in JavaScript using ObjectName.prototpye.methodName, but how would I do that in Perl?)

For example, what I would like to do is:

... sub ObjectToString { my $name = shift; return sub { my $s = $name . $self->getParametersAndValues(); return $s; } } ... package Fu; sub toString = ObjectToString("Fu"); ... package Bar; sub toString = ObjectToString("Bar"); ... package Baz; sub toString = ObjectToString("Baz"); ...

Then I would use it like this:

my ($foo, $bar, $baz); $foo = Fu->new(); # do stuff with foo... print $foo->toString(); $bar = Bar->new(); # do stuff with bar... print $bar->toString(); ...

The obvious answer here is to use Inheritance™, but what if, for some reason, I don't want to use inheritance? Can I still accomplish what I want to?
