Abigail: Come 'on' yourself. You must be having a crappy day to take only one thing out of my node and s$it on it. :-)

I never claimed that modifying @ISA should never be done. Just, those who normally resort to modifying @ISA, are new to Perl, and don't really understand what they are doing.

And even for people that do know what they are doing... it doesn't hurt to take a second look and consider whether there might not be an alternative that is more portable to other languages.

    If I wanted to write code that's more portable to other languages, OO would be one of the last things I'd consider using. Just one instance variable per object! I don't know any other language developer who considered doing that!

    Now, I wouldn't want to write code that's portable to other languages, but that's something else.
