  • I had no peace until I realized that everyone had their own opinion of what OO "really" means, and that one person's ideas might contradict another's, or might be totally noncommensurate.

    For me, I think you get most of the bang for your buck if you just think of it as an interface style, and work backwords from there. Most people seem to agree on practice, but not "principles", whatever that means.

    I guess that that approach of mine would say that the way to learn OO then, is to look at interfaces of OO modules and think about how they do things, starting off with by article "User's View of Object-Oriented Modules" [] (which will be in volume one (I think) of that ORA Best of The Perl Journal book that's coming out soon []).

    Altho I suppose that that learning-path needs honing with a few general principles [] like "don't use global variables".
