I enjoyed the article and learned a few things. I was already familiar with Perl's GC, and the information there was clear and concise. Your explanation of the proxy design pattern was also nice coverage of the material.

Two things about the article really stood out. First, covering a very clear example of why you would want to create a circular reference. The standard $a = \$a while correct, doesn't explain the use a circular reference would have, and why to intentionally create one. Well done.

Second, and also greatly appreciated was the discussion of weaken. That 5.6 had introduced core support for handling circular refs was new to me, and the coverage of the feature there was clear, and a nice surprise. I haven't seen the 5.8.0 docs yet, but this material would all be very useful in perlreftut.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
