Why not mix and match the OO and the functional? Maybe you have a standard class for performing generic operations on trees, but certain tree-types require particular ops so you can just field those out to coderefs e.g
package Tree::Ops; sub delete { ... } sub join { ... } 1; # ... later sub search { ... } my $tree = Tree::Struct->new( someops => 'Tree::Ops', searchop => \&search );
This has the benefits of re-usability, flexibility and all those funky OO features. Or you could declare the functions straight into the symbol table of said package e.g
sub Tree::Ops::avl_search { ... }
Gaining all the benefits of being in a class while still giving the control to the user[1].


[1] I'm sure I should've used a bunch of OO buzzwords there ... ah well ;-)

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.
