The current implementation of list getters for things like osfamily are cumbersome to use and not very perlish. If I want to get all the available osfamily names, as I understand it, I have to write something like this: my @families; my $i = 0; while(1) { my $family = $os->osfamily($i); break if $family eq $osfamilies[$i-1]; push @families, $family; $i++; } If the method call just returned an array, getting any part of the list would be simple: # get first os family $os->osfamily()[0]; # get last os family $os->osfamily()[-1]; # get the count of os families scalar $os->osfamily(); The fact that $os->osfamilies($i) returns the last item on the list for any number of $i greater that the last index is making it even harder to work around this problem, since you don't have any simple stopping condition. I don't mind writing a patch for this.
