( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

tye, the original query was about OO perl. I mentioned that the idiom gets criticised. In the followup, I explained why in terms of OO practice. Allowing object methods to set class metadata is a bad thing because it allows things which should not interact to change each other's behavior.

I see no FUD in my statement of that: "class methods and instance methods should be distinct and disjoint". There is no fear there, and it seem a quite certain and undoubting statement. Is that what you really object to?

What do you mean by '.. no "do this instead"'? I gave two distinct strategies for avoiding the construct.

Are you trying to get me to suggest some new perl syntax to somehow make things alright? I won't do that. The syntax is not the issue. If you have use for ref($class) || $class, be my guest.

BTW, why wouldn't I name a constructor new? I usually do unless I call it frobozz or clone or connect.

Throughout this thread you've been putting words in my mouth. Please stop that.

After Compline,
Zaxo

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.
