Just ignore, I don't play the semantics game well (you're right)
Except that it's not. An object is nothing more than a blessed reference, not data structure. Observe:use anal::retentive;
Now you know I like to quote ;) from perldoc -f blessmy %foo = (1,2,3,4); bless %boo,'bar'; __END__ Can't bless non-reference value at - line 2.
update: hmm, it's a weird thing, the datastructure is "blessed", but only the reference knows, weirdbless REF,CLASSNAME bless REF This function tells the thingy referenced by REF that it is now an object in the CLASSNAME package. If CLASSNAME is omitted, the current package is used. Because a "bless" is often the last thing in a constructor, it returns the reference for convenience. Always use the two-argument version if the function doing the blessing might be inherited by a derived class. See the perltoot manpage and the perlobj manpage for more about the blessing (and blessings) of objects. Consider always blessing objects in CLASSNAMEs that are mixed case. Namespaces with all lowercase names are considered reserved for Perl pragmata. Builtin types have all uppercase names, so to prevent confusion, you may wish to avoid such package names as well. Make sure that CLASSNAME is a true value. See the section on "Perl Modules" in the perlmod manpage.
MJD says you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!
