in reply to on the fly methods

sub makeMethod { my $this = shift; $this->{_coderef} = eval $this->{_codestring} } sub callMethod { my $this = shift; $this->{_coderef}->(@_) }

If you want to do something like this:

$this->makeMethod( "somenewname", "some code" ); $this->somenewname();
then I think you'll have to use AUTOLOAD or some module that provides that functionality.

[Corion]: (that module has been deprecated by its author already, so that's fair. Although I wonder why the backtracking can't be fixed to handle the formfeeds gracefully)
[choroba]: not enough tuits?
[Corion]: choroba: Yeah, maybe. I'm also unaware of who uses Email:: modules, but that's more my limited horizon of things ;)
[Corion]: Ah - there even is the replacement of Email::Address::XS , by the bug reporter, which hopefully fixes this bug already ;)
[choroba]: the reporter is my colleague, BTW, albeit in a different team
