OO Perl is fantastic. I love it. It just makes sense. However, one thing is really bugging me. Is there an eligant way to make methods in perl really private?
Now hold on, before y'all linch me let me first state that I HAVE heard and AGREE WITH Larry's quote about perl, living rooms and shot guns. (For those who havn't seen it I'll paraphrase: Perl would prefer that you stay out of its living room because it's the polite thing to do, not because you have a shotgun.) I really just want to know if it can be done. (To my mind this ability would really ADD to perl's flexibility--and acceptance.)
I'd appreciate any input. Even if it involves linching me ;)
