Yes, this is possible. Tie::SecureHash is an example of a class that does this.

In order to get the object and tied hash interface all at once, though, you have to be slightly tricky, and you need to create your object using the object constructor interface, not the tie interface:

sub new { my $class = shift; tie my %self, $class; bless \%self, $class; }
That returns a reference to the tied hash, which is also an object that is blessed into $class, which means that you can either use it as a tied hash, *or* call methods on it.

(NOTE: In the above example, the object is blessed into the tie class, but this is not required.)

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
