I agree with dws, OOP definatley seems like it would fit with your project. Plus you could do fun things like overload the stringify operator by adding
use overload "\"\"" => \&as_string;
to the EmmisiveColor class. Then your simple_properties could become:
sub simple_properties { my $self = shift; return "appearance Appearance {\n" . " material Material {\n" . " ". join("\n ", $self->properties). "\n" . " }\n" . "}\n"; }
Overloading a string operator might be quite handy for what it looks like you are doing, and I bet you would find other significant simplifications with an OOP approach. Here is a quick overloading/oop tutorial. (shameless self promotion :)

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.
