What happens when you want to have a method without any arguments in the middle of those other methods? This problem is the reason Aristotle used array references, I think.

A possible solution would be to "escape" the methods without arguments, yielding

my $window = Gtk2::Window->new( "toplevel" )->call_method_list( signal_connect => [ delete_event => sub { Gtk2->main_quit } ], set_title => "Test", \'my_argumentless_method', # <--------------- set_border_width => 15, add => Gtk2::Button->new( "Quit" )->call_method_list( signal_connect => [ clicked => sub { Gtk2->main_quit } ] ), \'show_all', );
and change the implementation to (untested)
use Carp qw( croak ); sub UNIVERSAL::call_method_list { my $target = shift; while ( scalar @_ ) { my $method = shift @_; my @args = (ref $method) ? () : (ref($_[0]) eq 'ARRAY') ? @{shift} + : shift; $method = $$method if ref $method; eval { $target->$method( @args ) }; if( $@ ) { croak( $@ ) } } return $target; }

Update: Apparently I should've read the code closer. The last case of a single method with no following element threw me off.

See perltoc if you don't know which perldoc to read!
Read argumentation in its context!
