If someone did repplace can(), he must know what he's doing.

Yes, but your code won't let him do it. If I'd written a plugin with a custom can(), to make it work with your program, I'd have to override UNIVERSAL::can()! Putting specific code to make a subclass work in a superclass (let alone the ultimate superclass) is bad design.

I understand that your code tries to ensure that everything in @plugins actually represents a valid invocant. That's well-worth doing, but I think you're forcing behavior of the plugins beyond the minimum you need to do what you're doing.

You've created a plugin system because you don't know what people will need to do to solve problems in the future. Don't enforce too many restrictions on how they'll solve those problems!

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.
