in reply to Reverse engineering

It'd be very hard for Perl since it is weakly typed. Suppose an object is implemented using a hash, how can you determine the type of the attributes? Similarly, what are the arguments to a method?

Another point: methods can parse their arguments using shift(@_) or by filling a local hash, again it's almost impossible to figure out what's going on automatically.

Just my 2 cents, -gjb-
