( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
OO Perl is fantastic. I love it. It just makes sense. However, one thing is really bugging me. Is there an eligant way to make methods in perl really private?

Now hold on, before y'all linch me let me first state that I HAVE heard and AGREE WITH Larry's quote about perl, living rooms and shot guns. (For those who havn't seen it I'll paraphrase: Perl would prefer that you stay out of its living room because it's the polite thing to do, not because you have a shotgun.) I really just want to know if it can be done. (To my mind this ability would really ADD to perl's flexibility--and acceptance.)

I'd appreciate any input. Even if it involves linching me ;)

Title:
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.
