"But it seems daft to [force] you to copy the data to another instance"

I should have placed $self inside base instead, and allowed the subclasses to format it in some way - but i was trying to keep it simple. The idea is that the base clase contains the data in a Perl data structure and the subclasses are responsible for flitering that data structure into a particular format. Let me try again:
package Factory; sub create { my $class = shift; my $obj = 'Base::' . shift; return $obj->new(); } package Base; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = { thing => 'foo' }; return bless $self,$class; } package Base::Bold; use base 'Base'; sub output { my $self = shift; return '<b>' . $self->{thing} . '</b>'; } package Base::Italic; use base 'Base'; sub output { my $self = shift; return '<i>' . $self->{thing} . '</i>'; } package main; my @things = ( Factory->create('Bold'), Factory->create('Italic'), ); print $_->output,$/ for @things;

And an HTML resume is different than a PDF resume: HTML and PDF are adjectives to the noun resume - an adjective qualifies, distinquishes, and specifies - hence, an HTML resume is one kind of resume (Resume::HTML), and a PDF resume is another kind (Resume::PDF). I you don't like this, then how about naming them Resume::AsHTML and Resume::AsPDF instead? ;)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
