Funnily enough, I think for many cases I would write that as
print 'text text ', $obj->method1(),
' more text ', $obj->method2(),
' blah blah ', $obj->method3();
I would only use printf if I needed to apply special formatting to the method returns.
My main reasons for this choice are that
- It is easy to extend.
Adding 'and more text', $obj->method2.5 is easy, and commenting out one part likewise.
- As the length of the format string increases, it becomes unweildy and need to be split across 2 or 3 lines anyway.
- I find this formatting easier to see what text applies to which method.
The absence of a newline, is because i always have -l enabled.
