  • That should be

    push @ISA, 'Married::Man'
    "," not "="
    • Argh! I've corrected it, thanks! I think that I was to write 'push @ISA => 'Married::Man'', and kind of got distracted in the middle of it.

      (Or, that least, that's the less shameful explanation I can came with.)

      • It’s the less shameful explanation thay… you can… came with? (“I can has ekzplanation pleas” or something?)

        • "I can has ekzplanation pleas" or something?

          But of course.

          You see, an indubitably shameful explanation for the typo in the original subject of this post (namely, push @ISA = 'Married::Man') would be that, for a however brief moment of madness, I honestly considered that syntax to be correct.

          A slightly less shamefaced justification for the slip, however, could be to maintain that the original intent was pure (push @ISA => 'Married::Man') but led astray by circumstantial distractions. To wit: an accutely above-average harebrained disposition due to the aftershocks of a recent marital status upgrade, a narrow survival of a massive invasion of rambunctious Teutonic hordes (which has only been made possible by means involving the sacrifice of unnumerable sausages to the charred altar of the BBQ gods) and the vivid trauma of waking to the alarm clock after one solid week of vacation time.

          Indeed, when this collection of boggling factors are taken into account, I hope that it becomes apparent why my internal Perl, not to mention English, parsers somewhat get a little meltdownish. :-)
