$obj->method will work on 5.004 at least, and I think on all versions.

As I recall, this feature was broken in a specific version of perl, caused by a wrong commit I think. But I couldn't locate something related to that now with a little Googling.

$foobj->method qw(b a) ;
Ah, that's interesting :) Recent perl (5.10 & 5.8.8) parses that as:
C:\Users\burak>perl -MO=Deparse -e "$foobj->method qw(b a) ;" $foobj->method('b', 'a'); -e syntax OK [schultz]$ perl -MO=Deparse -e '$foobj->method qw(b a) ;' $foobj->method('b', 'a'); -e syntax OK [schultz]$
it looks like qw() has some magic in it in recent versions

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.
