      Hi Ashley

      Yes, I'm trying to write a procedure that "does the right thing" depending
      on whether the parameters are named or simply positional.

      Unfortunately, it seems to me that your assumption (viz a SOAP object
      implies named parameters) is incorrect. If you check the supplied parameters
      to the subroutine you'll find that, once you've done a "@ISA =
      qw(SOAP::Server::Parameters)", the parameter list will always have a
      SOAP::SOM object at its end.

      The only way I can see of solving this is to look for the mandatory
      parameter names, and if you find any of them then assume the parameters have
      been passed by name. Ugh!

      Yes, but the reason I hesitated before was that I did not check for
      whether they are passed by name or position (and I assume that if
      coming as a SOAP object they are named). I think that you are concerned
      with whether they come across the wire named vs. positional, correct?

      sub login {
      my $self = shift;
      my $som, $email, $pass;

      if (ref($_[-1]) eq "SOAP::SOM") {
      $som = pop;
      ($email, $pass) = @{$som->method}{qw(email password)};
      } else {
      ($email, $pass) = @_;


      return SOAP::Data->name('Result')->type('boolean' => 1);
