in thread Workings of UNIVERSAL::can

Taken individually, each of the items is not an algorithm. Taken together (symbol table search in method resolution order), it is an algorithm, though ill-specified due to the variable of which mro is in effect.

No, taken together, it is still not an algorithm. An algorithm is well-defined by definition.

Also, its just repeating the question back at the original poster. The answer might work for "how do I print $foo?" (well, you print $foo;), but not here.
