Object orientation is programmer masturbation, a passing fad, and truly a bad idea that really does make programmers blind.

Yikes! I'm not sure I would call 40+ years of OO (17+ for perl5) a 'passing fad.' Excessive self-gratification, sure at times, but that's true with any language or style (Java, C++, procedural, functional, etc). In my experience, the language and/or technology is rarely a problem (give me the right assembly programmers and I can rule the world). Just like Eddie Wilson said it's 'words and music,' for us it's 'developer and tool.' The right pairing is a thing of beauty and the wrong pairing is destined for the unemployment line and the waste heap of history.

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.
