Perhaps it’s Perl day here at rc3.org. I’m working on a Web application as a favor to someone, and I’m writing the whole thing in Perl, which is a nice change from the Java I’m writing at my day job. It’s nice to get myself back in a Perl frame of mind again. Unfortunately, I’m trying to apply some of the concepts I’ve learned programming Java back to my previously hackerish Perl programming style with limited success. I really just need to dig into the object-oriented Perl stuff, but I’ve been in a hurry to get code written and haven’t done so yet. Anyway, A Beginner’s Introduction to POE looks helpful. I won’t be using POE itself, but some of the design concepts might be useful.
