Sure, but when I write code that's completely stateless,
Eh? Just because an object has state, doesn't mean it has to expose its internal state on an API.

My objects typically aren't stateless. Most of the time, the external world will not be able to peak at the internal implementation of state.

I rarely need polymorphism and probably don't need objects at all.
When I write code and I have the need to group a bunch of attributes in a container, I use a hash, and probably don't need objects at all.

But if I want to encapsulate something, I use objects, and actually encapsulate by not making most of the attributes visible.

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.
