in reply to Re: Re: Re (tilly) 2: Paradigm Shift - Dual Use Constructors
in thread Paradigm Shift - Don't use strict

Hmm. Interesting angle. But ircc (its on my home computer) the code went more like
sub new { my $proto=shift; my $class=$proto || ref $proto; my $self=bless {},$class; if ($class eq $proto) { #class call $self->init_rand(); } elsif (@_) { $self->init_cross($proto,shift); } else { $self->init_mutate($proto); } return $self }
So the dreaded line was/is present. But you are correct I did/would comment this.
