What's not native about Perl's OO?Answer:
The fact that you have to build your own objects reusing other bricks, and some spit named bless gives a strong impression that OO is bolted on to Perl, and not native. A Larry has said, OOP was an experiment in how minimalist one could design OO.
The syntactical sugar for calling methods doesn't make objects "native". There's no object type in Perl, I can't subclass integers or arrays (unless you call the 'tie' mechanism 'subclassing').
I'd call OO in Perl workable. But not native.
