Because the object ID is stored in the object's scalar ref (i.e., $$self), overloading ${} deferencing is not allowed. I document this fact in the POD.

However, all other forms of object deferencing through overloading are supported: Stringify, numerify, boolify, arrayify, hashify, globify and codify. Object::InsideOut simplifies defining these operations through the use of subroutine attributes. For example, your code would become:

use Test::More 'no_plan'; package Foo::Bar; { use Object::InsideOut; sub numify :Numerify { 42 } } package main; my $obj = Foo::Bar->new(); is(0 + $obj, 42);

Remember: There's always one more bug.

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.
