( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Polymorphism is your friend - definitely subclass! This way you can define an output method and just call it on which ever object you instantiated. You could even set up a factory object that instantiates the object for you. Here is a very simple example:
package Factory; sub create { my $class = shift; my $obj = 'Base::' . shift; return $obj->new(); } package Base; sub output { my $self = shift; return $self->{thing}; } package Base::Foo; use base 'Base'; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = { thing => 'foo' }; return bless $self,$class; } package Base::Bar; use base 'Base'; sub new { my $class = shift; my $self = { thing => 'bar' }; return bless $self,$class; } package main; my @things = ( Factory->create('Foo'), Factory->create('Bar'), ); print $_->output,$/ for @things;
Just replace Base with Resume and Foo and Bar with XML, HTML, PDF or whatever. Check out http://www.patternsinperl.com/designpatterns/factorymethod for a good read also.

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.
