Then you've missed what a discussion really is. It's not about winning,
it's about learning. Sadly you missed that point.

I have done so. If you don't consider it enough and think that code in a
book based on 8+ year old modules is the current state of Perl
programming, fine with me.
As a final word, I quote from chapter 12.10 of Learning Perl Objects,
References, & Modules :
"As seen earlier, *the normal means* of using an object-oriented module
is to call class methods and then methods against instances
resulting from constructors of that class. This means that an OO
module *typically exports nothing*, ..."
Which is in general recommended as the book one has to read after Learning
Perl (IIRC it will be renamed in a next edition to reflect this).
