in reply to Module Naming Dilemma

Hi Ovid,

I'm not going to comment on the name - I'm lousy with names :-) But I have to wonder about your motivation for writing this module - what's the purpose?
If a module is completely OO, you should be able to write the long name only once - when you call new() (or if you call new() several times, save the long name in a variable, as Gaal suggested). Afterwards, all the data and methods should be accesible using $object->method(), for example. Isn't that what OO is all about?

There was a discussion about this a while ago which started with a question I sent to the mailing list:

From what was said, I'm pretty convinced that you don't need a module such as the one you've written for OO modules. Am I wrong?
