Just to pile on the OO, you could use container classes :)
->set_byte(0, new Device::ParallelPort::Value(12));
->set_byte(0, new Device::ParallelPort::Char(12));
->set_byte(0, new Device::ParallelPort::BitArray(0,0,0,0,1,1,0,0));
Who says you can't do static types in Perl? :) Every value wants to be
* c.f. Ruby. Or Scalar::Properties.
