At a high level the question is, "Should whatever this module represents be an object?" and the answer is often obvious from the context of its use. If the code to use the module will (or could) have more than one of the thing, then it should be an object and your module should represent a class.

At a low level the question is, "Does this code need to work with existing code which is already OO?". eg. if you are looking to extend/replace existing OO code then equally the answer should be yes.

You can always mix procedural and OO within one module if required/desired. And don't forget about functional either. Horses for courses.

Finally, if you still aren't sure which way to go, try writing your tests first (before the code which they will test). That may make the preferred paradigm clearer.

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.
