back: Autoloading and Inheritance
next: Autoloading in Mail::Box
I think for most of you, this is rather explosive code. In the
main package, I first create a dumb object, which has no data
and functionality at all. On the moment I call a method on it --here
AUTOLOAD is triggered.
AUTOLOAD method does two things: load data
and assigns functionally by changing the type of the
object. The latter is typical Perl, and not possible in any other
language I know of.
