An object oriented principial dilema arises from such redundancy - should the child object be responsible for it's location in the parent (knowing and/or maintaining)?
Some will argue that since the children heriarchly exist within the parent, then the responsibility should only be the parent's...
This is perhaps analogeous to the question of wether you should use method objects within sibling methods, or access the object internals directly.
Think about it.

In addition, perhaps Tie::RefHash may be of use for maintaing a hash of references to the child objects, within the parent. The parent can simply lookup child by it's object reference, and in the hash will be the coordinate values.

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.
