Support multimethods and subroutine overloading in Perl
Sometimes Perl's standard polymorphic method dispatch mechanism isn't sophisticated enough to cope with the complexities of finding the right method to handle a given situation. Class::Multimethods to the rescue!
Generally speaking, multiple dispatch is needed whenever two or more objects belonging to different class hierarchies are going to interact, and there are different things that need to be done depending on the combination of the actual types of those objects. Typical applications that need this kind of ability include graphical user interfaces, image processing libraries, mixed-precision numerical computation systems, and most types of simulations.
