Ok, here's TRY 2. I'm almost 100% percent sure this is real object orientation. It's a package called AlienFarm that can make, teach, and give powers to aliens. (Constructed using the birth method.)

#! Perl use strict; { package AlienFarm; sub birth { my $self=shift; my ($sec,$min,$hour,$mday,$mon,$year,$wday,$yday,$isdst)=localtime +(time); my $name=shift; $mon+=1; $year+=1900; my $birth = "$mon $mday, $year"; my $alien = bless { NAME => "$name", BIRTH => "$birth", POWERS => [ ], BRAINS => ["pre-school", "1st grade", "2nd grade", "3rd grade", "4th grade", "5th grade", "6th grade", "7th grade", "8th grade", "9th grade", "10th grade", "11th grade", "12th grade", "Harvard Freshman", "Harvard Sophmo +re", "Havard Junior", "Harvard Senior", "Employed", "C +EO"], LEVEL => "-1" }, "AlienFarm"; } sub birthday { my $decide=shift; ref $decide ? $decide->{BIRTH} : "an unknown time"; } sub name { my $decide=shift; ref $decide ? $decide->{NAME} : "an unknown name"; } sub set_power { my $self=shift; my $power=shift; push @{$self->{POWERS}}, $power; } sub get_powers { my $self=shift; my $num=1; foreach my $power ( @{$self->{POWERS}} ) { print "$num) $power\n"; $num++; } print "\n"; } sub teach_lessons { my $self=shift; my $level = $self->{LEVEL}; $level+=1; $self->{LEVEL} = $level; return "Lesson taught. Level: ". $self->{BRAINS}[$self->{LEVEL}] . +"\n"; } sub schooling { my $self = shift; return $self->{BRAINS}[$self->{LEVEL}]; } }

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
