Do you know where your variables are?

Let's imagine that you are converting some OO code back to traditional non-OO style, is there a need or will you merge two or more methods into one function? No, that is absolutely not required.

You wouldn't merge function, but remember that many objects are just containers for a bunch of variables. They are nothing more that structs, and many objects are full of small accessor functions of the form:

sub accessor { my $self = shift; $self -> {key} = shift if @_; $self -> {key} }

That's code that will evaporate when converting OO to non-OO, as you would replace the call:

$obj -> accessor ("value");
with
$obj -> {key} = "value";

And by eliminating many short methods, the average size of the methods will increase.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
