  • $method = \&Object::method;

    Hardcoding considered suboptimal (for a range of reasons). You want this:

    $method = $object->can( 'method' );

    You have to remember to pass a reference to $object in either case, though. No getting around that in Perl.

    Therefore you would normally use a closure as per Dominic’s suggestion.
