Python is easier
I had written many thousands of lines of non-OO code in Perl, but was never able to understand Perl's obfuscated OO syntax and features. Like the man said, "...OOP in Perl is somewhat complex, primarily because the language has a somewhat novel way of doing things." Then I stumbled on Python and I never looked back. Learning Python was easier than learning the OO features of Perl. Looking over this little Perl OO tutorial I'm glad all over again that I switched to Python. Go to www.python.org

Of course Python is easier at handling objects. It's supposed to be. Python lacks alot that Perl has, but Perl's OO features are a little . . . . novel. So if you're writing code that is essentaily OO, then go Python. If you're using objects to power up programs that seem perfect for the Perl modality then stick with perl

I liked the style and the content, the major stumbling block for me is "How do I read this stuff?"
I guess it doesn't really matter but it would be so useful to have a handle for "::" and also for "->", I find it difficult to assimilate stuff that I can't pronounce as I read it.
Maybe it's just me...

The terminology "anonymous array" I don't think is intended to be humorous. As the author points out, the array really doesn't have a name. Calling it anonymous isn't even figurative. It's just correct.
best article I ever saw on the subject
very, very helpful article, much better written, than every book I have read about the subject. Thanks a lot
