in reply to Re: LWP help
in thread Looking for documentation on using LWP and forms

What's the best way in your opinion to learn OO especially as it applies to perl?... I am getting there in the round about way but mostly in theory not application and really not anything related to Perl. I am wishing that I started OO right off instead of pulling an "Oh yeah I'll lean that later...". It seems like the way to go for a lot of things and it's definatly the future so I gotta learn it :). Thanks for your help!

    If you are interested in CGI programming Ovid's CGI course does not specifically cover using an OO object but all/most of his examples show how to use the OO interface of

    Most all modules s/have|only have/ an OO interface so using other modules would be a good idea.

    The Camel Book has some examples in the back, so does the Ram Book.


    Update: BTW I was just talking about using the OO interface to a .pm if you want to learn to program OO perl:

  • Object Oriented Perl by TheDamian and merlyn is excellent.
  • The Panther Book has chapters about OO and modules.
  • Effective Perl Programming or the White Pearl Book has a chapters with tips modules and OO. (BTW co-authored with merlyn).
  • and last but not least the perldoc 'perldoc perltoot' or perltoot.

    I'd start with merlyn's Beginner's Object-Oriented Tutorial aka perlboot... it was specifically written to be a gentle introduction to perl's OO features. Its light-hearted and fun too ;-)
