( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

Speaking of aesthetics, I find that example ambiguous. It's not obvious to me whether push is a method that just so happens to have the same name as the push keyword (the one which works on arrays) or whether it's an alternate way of writing that keyword. Is that a method which operates on a container (the array) or an object (not really a container)?

In my mind, one of Perl's OO flaws is unnecessarily confusing containers and objects. An object may have containers, but should it be one?

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
