Could you give an example of what you mean in C++ and how Perl differs
In C++, types are not first-class objects. You can't pass a type as a
normal parameter because there is no such thing.
So type parameters are treated differently with their own syntax:
In Perl, you can simply pass
foo(::C, ::D, x, y, z);
because types are first-class objects. You can define parameters that
have a Type type, and use their value to create objects of that type,
and even annotate declarations.
