Design Patterns are a concise means of describing program behaviors. They are commonly used by programmers to express how code works, or give a name to common programming idioms.
This tutorial introduces design patterns in Perl, starting with small, micro-patterns, and continues on to to more complex idioms and patterns. Rather than reinterpret design patterns from Java or C++, this tutorial focuses on those patterns that work in Perl.
Using these design patterns helps simplify Perl programs by reusing common idioms, adopting scalable programming techniques, and help make programs easy to extend.
Topics covered in this tutorial include: Statement Modifiers
Iterators and List Operations
Plugins and Extensions
Callbacks and Event Handlers
Inversion of Control
