• Question 60. Why Does Perl Not Have Overloaded Functions?

Answer :

Because you can inspect the argument count, return context, and object types all by yourself. 

In Perl, the number of arguments is trivially available to a function via the scalar sense of @_, the return context via want array(), and the types of the arguments via ref() if they're references and simple pattern matching like /^d+$/ otherwise. In languages like C++ where you can't do this, you simply must resort to overloading of functions. 

• Question 61. Which Of These Is A Difference Between C++ And Perl?

Answer :

Perl can have objects whose data cannot be accessed outside its class, but C++ cannot.

Perl can use closures with unreachable private data as objects, and C++ doesn't support closures. Furthermore, C++ does support pointer arithmetic via `int *ip = (int*)&object', allowing you do look all over the object. Perl doesn't have pointer arithmetic. It also doesn't allow `#define private public' to change access rights to foreign objects. On the other hand, once you start poking around in /dev/mem, no one is safe.
