Rfv-sense: Perl programming: Perl keyword to allow a reference to be used as an object. Is this in common use? Do we permit published code examples as citations? DCDuring TALK 15:22, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
- I thought the community had decided that "all words in all languages" didn't extend to "keywords in programming languages". But I could add lots if we change our mind. SemperBlotto 15:26, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
- A lot of them can inflect like "real" verbs though, e.g. a "blessed" object (but only "bless" is a keyword). I've wondered about this too. 18.104.22.168 19:09, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
- I don't think the keyword merits inclusion, especially since so far as I know Perl is the only language that uses it (and even in Perl it's not even a keyword so much as a built-in function), but Perlers use bless as a transitive verb meaning "to pass (a reference) as the first argument to
bless, and thereby turn it into an object". I think this verb sense probably is worth including. —RuakhTALK 19:16, 14 September 2008 (UTC)
- I agree.—msh210℠ 21:21, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
The word bless was also either related or influenced by the word bliss, and blissen was also used as a substitute for blessen in Middle English. 22.214.171.124 12:29, 12 August 2015 (UTC)
