2.12 OO Perl

OO Perl is relatively simple and is implemented using references which know what sort of object they are based on Perl's concept of packages. However, OO Perl is largely beyond the scope of this document. Read "Beginner's Object-Oriented Tutorial" (perlboot) in Perl Tutorials, "Tom's object-oriented tutorial for perl" (perltoot) in Perl Tutorials, "Tom's OO Tutorial for Class Data in Perl" (perltooc) in Perl Tutorials and 16.

As a beginning Perl programmer, your most common use of OO Perl will be in using third-party modules, which are documented below.
