    7.11: How do I create a class?

    (contributed by brian d foy)

    In Perl, a class is just a package, and methods are just subroutines.
    Perl doesn't get more formal than that and lets you set up the package
    just the way that you like it (that is, it doesn't set up anything for
    you).

    The Perl documentation has several tutorials that cover class creation,
    including perlboot (Barnyard Object Oriented Tutorial), perltoot (Tom's
    Object Oriented Tutorial), perlbot (Bag o' Object Tricks), and perlobj.



    --------------------------------------------------------------------

    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.

    If you'd like to help maintain the perlfaq, see the details in
    perlfaq.pod.
