Well, that's one way to go about it. For something like that, where the data element has some sort of restrictions on it, you're much better off using typed data for the element you need to have escape, and let the class the data is blessed into pitch a fit in the event an assignment to it violates the constraits on that data. Since typed data can overload assignment, it's an easy way to have action-at-a-distance validation of data going into variables.

That eliminates the need for proxy objects and suchlike hackery, and provides a cleaner interface. I expect someone (like, say... you? :) will come up with a constraints module such that you can say:

my $foo has constraint({length $^a < 12});

To allow tagging on contstraint conditions. (Assuming, in this case, that constraint takes a list of closures which all must return true to allow the assignment) Modulo proper perl 6 syntax, of course.

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
