in thread Better Inside-Out Objects :)

What happens when someone tries to throw one of these objects at Data::Dumper et al?

That's a problem with Inside-Out Objects in general.

What happens when someone tries to create an object on the fly by loading data into a hash reference manually and then blessing it into an object?

They ought to be shot. Constructors (incl cloning and deserializing constructors) exist for a reason. You can't expect to clone an object by copying it's bytes or it's fields.

    For Data::Dumper, yes, because its OO approach is broken. Not so for Storable. I was speaking generically.

    You can't expect to clone an object by copying it's bytes or it's fields.

    Ditto for changing its properties by directly accessing its hash, which is why this is a mess.
