( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I wrote about this in my use.perl journal at http://use.perl.org/~Revelation/journal/12867.

Looking back, I had to major problems (that weren't all that well articulated):
  • Chained method calls make backwards compatibility hard to do, if you make an attribute into its own object at any time. You can't use Want.pm, because either way you want an object.
  • Chained method calls force a person reading to check whether a mutator has returned the same object or a more specific object.

    I agree with you. Not a big fan.

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