OO Stuff

[ #2583 ]
Whoa! A journal entry about Perl? What's going on? ;)

We're having a problem with our Web site with our subscription database, especially since we started auditing ourselves through a third party vendor (audits are useful when selling our magazine to advertisers to backup our claims of circulation, though a pain digging numbers out of a system that wasn't designed for such to begin with).

One of the problems is that there are multiple ways to add/remove subscribers to our internal database. Every change to the database needs to be recorded in a separate table, which some current scripts aren't doing. My idea is to create a centralized "Subscriber" object that can handle additions, removals and alterations. My manager doesn't 'get it', though, and tells me to wait for some incoming e-mail from him that would explain his needs more. He believes we can just patch all the set of scripts we have now. Whatever the needs are, I can't seem them eclipsing the need for such an OO'd design. It would be a week or two of work, for sure, but worth it (especially for future script work)... may need to don my battle gear for this one. ;(

Oh well ... back to reading 'perldoc perltoot'
