  • It'd be nice if there was a table of contents on the Perl Hacks page -- even a tentative one. The rough cuts version would be much more enticing if I knew exactly what was in the book. :-)
    • What sort of time penalty is this sort of technique going to introduce?

      function calls are already pretty expensive, but depending on how you are implementing this I imagine it could result in a lot more of them. Would this be correct?
  • I have a little module that does exactly that for a little while now and didn't think anyone else was that crazy :)

    I played the game even a bit more in the last weeks:

        sub foo :Method( Int $foo, Object $bar! ) {
                print class, ': ', args->foo;

    Called via:

        $object->foo( foo => 23, bar => $bar_obj );

    • "args" returns just a container object, that uses autoload to simulate accessors. That's just to capture typos. It's mostly following the Perl 6 signature idea (at least the current one).

      Hmmm, it may pair nicely with Moose []: although the latter claims not to be a Perl 6 implementation in Perl 5, it is admittedly heavily inspired by Perl 6 itself, and to some extent imports Perl 6 semantics, with special emphasis on OO features, in Perl 5. Also, it seems that unlike e.g. v6 [], it is much less experimental a

  • Heya c, do you plan to release Attribute::Method on CPAN? I'd love to see it there, esp. if you have an XS implementation to do the magic lickedy-split!
