3.26: Where can I learn about object-oriented Perl programming?

A good place to start is perltoot, and you can use perlobj, perlboot,
perltoot, perltooc, and perlbot for reference.

A good book on OO on Perl is the "Object-Oriented Perl" by Damian Conway
from Manning Publications, or "Intermediate Perl" by Randal Schwartz,
brian d foy, and Tom Phoenix from O'Reilly Media.


The perlfaq-workers, a group of volunteers, maintain the perlfaq. They
are not necessarily experts in every domain where Perl might show up,
so please include as much information as possible and relevant in any
corrections. The perlfaq-workers also don't have access to every
operating system or platform, so please include relevant details for
corrections to examples that do not work on particular platforms.
Working code is greatly appreciated.
