Those items certainly signify a number—a variety of seconds. in general, we would need to upload them including a few grotesque hack like this: my $new = $min->add($hour); or even then it is not transparent even if that alters the unique $min. So one typical use of operator overloading will be to let us to assert $min + $hour, and come back an item representing 3,660 seconds. and that's accurately what occurs: my $new = $min + $hour; print $new->seconds; # 3660 this can be performed by means of the next little bit of code within the Time::Seconds module: use overload '+' => \&add; # ... sub upload { my ($lhs, $rhs) = _get_ovlvals(@_); go back Time::Seconds->new($lhs + $rhs); } sub _get_ovlvals { my ($lhs, $rhs, $reverse) = @_; $lhs = $lhs->seconds; if (UNIVERSAL::isa($rhs, 'Time::Seconds')) { $rhs = $rhs->seconds; } elsif (ref($rhs)) { die "Can't use non Seconds item in operator overload"; } if ($reverse) { go back $rhs, $lhs; } go back $lhs, $rhs; } The overload pragma is the most important to all of it. It tells Perl to seem extra conscientiously at operations concerning items of that type, and it registers equipment for the given operators in a look-up desk. whilst an item is fascinated with an overloaded operation, the operation is appeared up within the desk and the ensuing approach referred to as. to that end, $obj + $other will name $obj->add($other, 0). the explanation Perl passes 3 parameters to the strategy is that during the case of $other + $obj, the place $other isn't an item that overloads +, we nonetheless anticipate the upload approach to be known as on $obj. for this reason, even though, Perl will name $obj->add($other, 1), to indicate that the arguments were reversed. The _get_ovlvals subroutine seems on the arguments to an operator and attempts to coerce them into numbers—other Time::Seconds gadgets are changed into numbers via having the seconds process referred to as on them, traditional numbers are undergone, and the other type of item motives a deadly errors. Then the arguments are reordered to the unique order. when we have usual numbers, we will be able to upload them jointly and go back a brand new Time::Seconds item according to the sum. the opposite operators are in accordance with this precept, comparable to <=>, which implements the entire comparability operators: use overload '<=>' => \&compare; sub evaluate { my ($lhs, $rhs) = _get_ovlvals(@_); go back $lhs <=> $rhs; } Time::Seconds additionally overloads project operators += and -=: use overload '-=' => \&subtract_from; sub subtract_from { my $lhs = shift; my $rhs = shift; $rhs = $rhs->seconds if UNIVERSAL::isa($rhs, 'Time::Seconds'); $$lhs -= $rhs; go back $lhs; } this lets you say $new += 60 so as to add one other minute to the hot period. ultimately, to prevent having to write down such subroutines for each type of operator, Time::Seconds makes use of a characteristic of overload known as fallback. This instructs Perl to try to immediately generate average tools from those unique: for example, the $x++ operator should be carried out when it comes to $x += 1, etc. Time::Seconds units fallback to undef, this means that Perl will try and use an autogenerated technique yet will die if it can't locate one.
