$self->modified = sub { 0 }; produces the error: "Can't modify non-lvalue subroutine call at line 12"

This is attempting to call the modified() method and treat it as an lvalue, which requires an lvalue attribute on the subroutine declaration.

whereas $self::modified = sub { 0 } has no effect.

This simply assigns an anonymous sub to the scalar $self::modified.

As GrandFather described, you need to provide actual subroutines. I'm not sure where you came up with this random syntax. You might want to read Beginning Perl's Chapter on object-oriented Perl, perlboot, and perltoot.

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.
