    Date Published: 2002-11-19

    Encapsulation is one of the cornerstones of object orientation, but it's the area in which Perl's support for object-oriented programming is weakest. Many would argue that enforced encapsulation is against Perl's philosophy of freedom and flexibility in programming. However, there are situations when too much freedom becomes a trap, and too much flexibility makes it hard to build solid code. Fortunately, Perl's flexibility can be turned against itself to provide a means of building objects that respect the encapsulation imposed by their classes.
