( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

In the Cookbook, it's page 446 "A Warning on Indirect Object Notation" and in OOP it's pp98-101 "Another way to call a constructor".

To summarise, there are two problems with it:

  1. The classname in method CLASS must be a bare symbol, a block or a scalar variable. It can't be just any old scalar expression. This can lead to surprising parsing.
  2. Perl needs to guess whether the method is, in fact, a method or a function. It can sometimes get this wrong. Particularly if your method has the same name as a function in your main package.

In general it will work fine, but the times that it won't work are so difficult to keep a track of that it's best to never use it. There's no good reason not to use the alternative CLASS->method syntax, so I see it as a good habit to get into.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
