I basically agree :-) There are certainly other useful styles for setters. For example, the idiom of returning the old value in a setter allows you to compact:

my $old = $foo->fribble $foo->fribble($new); ... do something ... $foo->fribble($old);

to

my $old = $foo->fribble($new) ... do something; $foo->fribble($old);

However, for me the extra clutter that C::P::MC adds takes away the advantages that chaining gives you :-)

That said - how about this as a way to get around the name clashing problems:

package Class::Chain; use strict; use warnings; sub AUTOLOAD { my $self = shift; our $AUTOLOAD; my ($method) = ($AUTOLOAD =~ m/^.*::(.*)$/); return bless \$self->$method(@_) unless ref($self); return $$self->$1(@_) if $method =~ m/^raw_(.*)$/; return bless \$$self->$1(@_) if $method =~ m/^wrap_(.*)$/; $$self->$method(@_); return($self); }; sub chain { my ($self, $sub) = @_; $sub->($self); $self; }; sub DESTROY {};

Which gives you:

# call the whatever method and return $wrapped $wrapped->whatever # call the whatever method and return any value(s) $wrapped->raw_whatever # call the underlying method and wrap return value $wrapped->wrap_whatever # run $wrapped->$coderef and return $wrapped $wrapped->chain($coderef)

So your second example would become something like (untested):

my $file_dialog = Gtk::FileSelection ->Class::Chain::new("File Selection Demo") ->chain(sub {shift->wrap_ok_button ->label("Load") ->relief("half") ->width(80) ->height(50) ->signal_connect(clicked => sub { print $file_dialog->get_filename()->ret_val, "\n"; }); }) ->chain(sub {shift->wrap_cancel_button ->label("Exit") ->relief("half") ->width(80) ->height(50) ->signal_connect(clicked => sub{Gtk->main_quit}); }) ->set_filename("penguin.png") ->signal_connect(destroy => sub{Gtk->main_quit}) ->show();

I still think it's ugly tho :-) :-)
