I have to disagree with this one. you're not referring to "self" (in OO terms), but merely to the (lexical, in this case) variable $object. consider this:

my $object = make_object(); &$object("add-msg", "get-self", sub {return $object}); my $copy = $object; print &$copy("get-self"), "\n"; $object = 42; print &$copy("get-self"), "\n";
the output of this snippet is:
CODE(0x18350d8) 42
which shows that $copy is still an "object", but the second call to get-self returns the current value of $object (which is not an "object" anymore).

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.
