( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I wouldn't re-use the same variable name for a lexical that has already been defined. Also, don't put a postfix if on a my, as its behavior is undefined - see the note at the bottom of the section Statement Modifiers. Instead, you could do:

my $self = OO->new( $cat ); { my $inner_self = $ARGV[0] eq 'Fido' ? OO->new( $dog ) : $self; say $inner_self->species(); }

Note you shouldn't use Indirect Object Syntax either.

Update: Added some details to the above. Plus, why don't you just do this?

my $self = OO->new( $ARGV[0] eq 'Fido' ? $dog : $cat );

It's also a bit unusual to use $self as the variable name for a newly created object, since $self is usually used as the first argument to a method call, i.e. it's an existing object.

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
