Keep It Simple, Stupid

Consider the following structure shown below. The entire Foo:: package (and in fact the module file itself) is only loaded if the conditional is hit.

Yeah, I see where you're coming from. As I said, its a style thing.

Personally I don't like it because it means users of the package then have to decide whether they want to keep their own script simple (all dependencies up the top) and simply pay the performance price, or go to extreme lengths to firstly understand where the performance penalties are coming from (which of potentially many packages, assuming this style is adopted everywhere) and then do something to handle it (usually resulting in scripts with difficult to find dependencies). The whole idea behind OO is that you encapsulate your data and code into separate classes. To me that also means making sure your classes don't shit all over the place until they have been instantiated.

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.
