Hmm, I am not sure it is a good idea to do this kind of things. It appears you're really tampering with the symbol tables. This is sort of similar to symbolic references (which are very much frown upon). Or, maybe, this kind of construct should be reserved only for special cases where you want to extend the language, but perhaps shouldn't be done for regular coding. You don't show enough for me to be able to suggest an alternative approach, however.

I am not saying that this is bad, I am not quite sure, but I am just questioning or perhaps only wondering whether this is a good idea. I would be quite interested to know what other monks think about that.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • 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.
