To find out what methods are part of the interface that Perl knows to look for type "perldoc -f tie". Note that the documentation here of tie is somewhat misleading since it documents the limitations of tie that were in Perl 5.003. For instance you probably can create a full tied interface to an array.
It feels strange the first few times you create an implementation of a tied class, but it really is not very hard and it is an excellent example of how encapsulation can lead to good things later. :-)
