Thank you all the monks who have replied with so much explation.
Today I was reading Programmaing Perl, 3rd Edition by Larry Wall, Tom Christiansen and Jon Orwant and found out a way to modify the code which I posted in my previous mail to implement private method. The modified code is
{ package Animal; use Carp; use overload(); sub new { my $class = shift; my $name = shift; bless \$name, $class; } sub name { my $self = shift; ref $self ? $$self : "an unnamed $self"; } sub speak { my $class = shift; print "a $$class goes ", $class->sound, "!\n"; } sub eat { my $self = shift; my $food = shift; print $self->name, " eats $food.\n"; } my $private_method = sub { my $self = shift; print "From private method\n"; }; sub Private_Method { my $self = shift; print "kk::$self->{private_var}\n"; if (0 == index overload::StrVal($self), __PACKAGE__,0) { $self->$private_method(); } } } { package Horse; use vars '@ISA'; @ISA = qw (Animal); sub sound {"neigh"}; } { package Sheep; use vars '@ISA'; @ISA = qw (Animal); sub sound {"blahhhhhhhh"}; } my $horse1 = Horse->new("H1"); $horse1->speak; print "Horse sounds ", Horse->sound, "\n"; $horse1->eat("hay"); Sheep->eat("grass"); Sheep->speak(); #$horse1->Private_Method; #I can not access this Animal->Private_Method;
Is this method OK? Is there any loophole? Any help will be really appreciated.
Thanks in advance.

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.
