Wow. An elightening explanation. One more question though. You say when you're extracting methods for the perl code, "Figure out what local vars it needs and pass them as arguments". Why don't you have to do this for the java code?

As I was writing this, it occurred to me that you don't have to do it because the java one scans your selection for variables and automatically determines which variables you need passed. In which case, I really think that's fairly doable in the perlworld, especially now that we have PPI.

I have to admit, the entire point of this thread was so I could think of something cool to do with PPI, as I think it's a really incredible module.. I just couldn't think of anything useful to do with it!

As an example, if you had this as your code selection:
my $x = frob( $bz ); print $x + $z; foobar( $x );
Using the power of PPI it should be trivial to generate a new method:
sub methodname { my ($bz, $z ) = @_; my $x = frob($bz; print $x + $z; foobar( $x ); }
Is that more or less what you had in mind?
