There is heated debate regarding chained methods as well as a method returning a reference to the object (good idea or not) but it works like this (traditional perl OO):
sub legs { my ($self, $attribute, $val) = @_; $self->{legs}{$attribute} = $val; return $self; } sub eyes { my ($self, $attribute, $val) = @_; $self->{eyes}{$attribute} = $val; return $self; }

In other words, the method returns the object so you can then invoke another method on the return value and then assign the return value of that chained method back to the original scalar holding a reference to the object. I made minor updates to this node soon after submitting as I hadn't seen the original code in the root thread.

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.
