Just ignore, I don't play the semantics game well (you're right)
use anal::retentive;
Except that it's not. An object is nothing more than a blessed reference, not data structure. Observe:
my %foo = (1,2,3,4); bless %boo,'bar'; __END__ Can't bless non-reference value at - line 2.
Now you know I like to quote ;) from perldoc -f bless
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.
update: hmm, it's a weird thing, the datastructure is "blessed", but only the reference knows, weird

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.
