OO Perl is easy once the penny has dropped, actually I couldn't believe
how easy it is. However it doesn't suit evey solution and it's a bit
slower than procedural Perl.
I'd be happy to help you get going if you want a talk on the topic,
or some online help.

The test of the goodness of a thing is its fitness for use. If it
fails on this first test, no amount of ornamentation or finish will
make it any better, it will only make it more expensive and foolish.
