Scarborough has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have read and tryed the examples in Object-Oriented Tutorial and coming from a Java background found it very understandable, ten out of ten, thanks.
However I had a feeling that tie had something to do with OO so off I went to http://www.perldoc.com/perl5.8.4/pod/func/tie.html and confusion sets in.
The docs say "A class implementing a hash should have the following methods:
TIEHASH classname, LIST
FETCH this, key
STORE this, key, value
DELETE this, key
EXISTS this, key
NEXTKEY this, lastkey
I don't see these methods in the tutorial, which is implementing an odject as a hash, and still seems to work correctly.
Are there any monks who can direct me on the path to enlightenment.
