Help! Help!

Length: 10 minutes

Description

Introduces the Help module, which detects when an unknown method is called on a Perl object and produces a listing of method calls that could have been used instead. Mainly interesting as a tiny example of several Perl introspection techniques. This 10-minute talk was prepared for !!Con 2014.
