Why are you assigning to $self->{"property$n"} and then returning $self->{property}?

That is a typo, which I then copied.

Your @_ test also makes little sense to me. If you are trying to write get/set routines, you would want to get on a single routine, set on 2, and think about throwing an error on 3 or more.

Yes. This is another typo. Should have been >=, not >. The error on 3 or more makes sense, but I usually forget those.

Fortunately, I have Attribute::Property, so I can even write working code when I'm as tired as I was when I wrote that node.

If you are going to have a lot of very similar code, then I think that autogenerating can be good.

I've put all my favourite object-property-code in Attribute::Property, together with xmath. It was originally made to allow $foo->bar = 14; syntax, but I use it now mostly because it makes creating classes much easier. (And when I'm tired, apparently this means I make less mistakes. See the other node: I made no mistake in the lines that use : Property :-))

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.
