Object-Oriented Perl - Introduction in The Perl Review

by ghenry (Vicar)

Dear Monks,

Today I feel good. I know what OO Perl is.

I recently bought Learning Perl Objects, References, and Modules but haven't got to the OO part yet. So now I am not scared and know how useful and simple OO Perl can be. All I knew before was that an object is a reference to a blessed variable ;-)

Well off to start playing and joining the rest of the OO Perl world!

So a big thanks to brian_d_foy for The Perl Review magazine and the Alberto Manuel Simoes for his Article.

    You may also find extremely useful this book (Perl Design Patterns).


      Bookmarked ;-)

    Simon Cozens has a short article about OO Perl on Perl.com

    .

    And don't forget to look for Damian's book on OO Perl.

    And don't forget the wonderful tutorial section as well.

    How does it feel to be a saint without knowing OO-perl?! *sigh*

    Considered by jbrugger: delete, trolling
    Unconsidered by Arunbear: keep votes prevented reaping; Keep/Edit/Delete: 8/0/8

      It doesn't take in-depth perl knowledge to become a saint. There are several discussions within these walls that point out the fact that being friendly, nice and not straying too far off topic is more valuable in earning XP than is perl knowledge.

      Plus there are lots of sub-areas that perl is useful for, so it's entirely possible to be a saint without being good at, for example: regular expressions, CPU efficient algorithms, maintenance efficient programming practices, golf, a walking index to CPAN, etc. It is generally helpful if one knows at least one sub-area well.

      But, XP is just a number, so don't worry about it.

        ... being friendly, nice and not straying too far off topic is more valuable in earning XP than is perl knowledge.

        I often find that true of coworkers. They can be taught Perl.

      For me, what's worse are harse comments from Anonymous Posters.

      What about just knowing about Perl basics, Modules, References and everything else (to some degree) apart from OO-Perl?

        Agree!

        My personal target is being able to manage 100% with Standard Multiplatform Perl (that is: all the functions & syntax + all the modules that are bundled with the standard distribution).

        Yet, I constantly keep on discovering issues, in this SMP, that are completely new to me... I would be glad to know more of what I am missing.
