Object Oriented Perl? July 12, 2008Posted by claudio in Uncategorized.

I have some code out there that follows the inside-out objects methodology of Perl Best Practices. Lately I have been writing java code, and inside-out objects feel like a lot of extra – not very intuitive – work to create your classes. I have been looking at Moose, but again it looks pretty cumbersome to create classes (constructors, named parameters for methods, returns, etc.). I am just probably missing a good howto (besides the cookbooks on cpan) or even a printed book on Moose. Any tips out there to get into Moose fast or a nice complete and intuitive alternative (extra points if it’s similar to java’s OO framework)? Thanks.
EDIT (Feb. 16th 2009): it seems I have a direct line with The Perl Foundation: a grant was approved for Dave Rolsky to work on the Moose documentation. Yannick greated a nice pdf output of the manual (see this as well).
