( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

It would be better written $self->$func($value), where $func in this case is one of those ambiguous methods that is both accessor and mutator, like:

sub confoosing { my ($self, $arg) = @_; return $arg ? $self->{confoosing} = $arg : $self->confoosing; }

Your suggested rewrite of the constructor is generic enough to be entirely inheritable, obviating the need for QuotePlus::new, although this method kinda chaps my hide since I like to have a predetermined list of acceptable parameters for each constructor, even those in an inheritance chain. Doing it this way is convenient, except when it comes time for argument checking. I'm also still addicted to Java-style constructor chaining, although generally now I accomplish that by separating instantiation from initialization.

Cf. inheritance: constructors

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
