If you're looking for a quick and dirty solution and you're working with your own (hash-based) objects this should do the trick:
use strict; use warnings; use Test::More tests => 9; { package root; sub base { "do" } package foo; @foo::ISA = 'root'; sub new { bless {@_[1 .. $#_]}, $_[0] } sub hey { 'yo' } } sub add_method_to_class { my($cls, $name, $meth) = @_; no strict 'refs'; *{"$cls\::$name"} = $meth; } sub add_method_to_obj { my($obj, $name, $meth) = @_; my $class = ref $obj; (my $objcls = "$obj") =~ s/[^A-Z0-9]//ig; { no strict 'refs'; *{"$objcls\::ISA"} = [ @{"$class\::ISA"}, $class ]; } $_[0] = bless { %$obj }, $objcls; add_method_to_class($objcls, $name, $meth); } can_ok foo => 'hey'; can_ok foo => 'base'; eval { foo->new->yay } or pass "foo can't yay"; add_method_to_class('foo', yay => sub { "yay!" }); can_ok foo => 'yay'; my $o = foo->new; eval { $o->woo } or pass "\$o can't woo"; add_method_to_obj($o, woo => sub { "woo!" }); can_ok $o => 'woo'; eval { foo->new->woo } or pass "foo can't woo"; can_ok $o => 'base'; can_ok $o => 'hey';
But if you're looking for a long-term robust solution then follow the sagacious davorg's advice.

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.
