( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Have you considered making properties first-class Objects? This could lead to greatly simplified code. Consider
package EmmisiveColor; sub new { my $pkg = shift; return bless [ @_ ], $pkg; } sub as_string { my $self = shift; "emmisiveColor @$self" }
And so on for the other properties. Properties become easier to enumerate. You can do away with the switch entirely. Assuming you're doing so within the context of an object that holds properties, your snippet reduces to something like:
sub simple_properties { my $self = shift; my @propstrings = map { $_->as_string() } $self->properties(); return "appearance Appearance {\n" . " material Material {\n" . " ", join("\n ", @propstrings), "\n" . " }\n" . "}\n"; }

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.
