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

The dash syntax one was straightforward. This works in Perl 5:

*{"foo-bar"} = sub { "Hello, @_!\n" }; print &{"foo-bar"}('world');

It might work in Perl 4 or even Perl 3, but I had not verified yet... :-)

As for object systems: Well, the very notion of "object systems" means "interfaces as types", and it's precisely across those interfaces we bridge between calling conventions.

Please refer to William Cook's slides and essay for more rigorous explanations of the interface/OO link.

So in that sense, there are really no totally incompatible object systems, since any two such systems can embed one another using cross-system meta-object protocol.

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.
