in reply to Moose stringification overloading isn't working

You didn't post code that would let me reproduce your problem, so I can only guess.

One guess is that you wrote another sub _stringify in a child class, and expected it to be called by the string overloading.

It won't, of course, because you gave overload a reference to this one subroutine. If you want that kind of polymorphism, use

use overload '""' => sub { shift->_stringify() };

If you don't, make sure to do an apple-to-apple comparison by writing $logger->trace("Zep is " . ref($zep) . " stringifies as $zep" . " but _stringify returns " . OT::Zeppelin::_stringify($zep) );

You can solve any problem in computer science with another layer of indirection, except the problem of too many layers of indirection.

[choroba]: originally, you sent a pull request to someone by email, i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo
[Discipulus]: if is the author of a patch, is more like a 'request to push' into rather than a pull request..
[choroba]: as it's considered unpolite to push to someone else's repo
[choroba]: and in fact, you don't push into the target repo, you push into your branch of your fork
[choroba]: the maintainer of the upstream repo than "merges" the pull request, i.e. they pull from your fork into the upstream
[Discipulus]: ' i.e. you asked them to pull from your repo' =~ I (subj) want to push
[Discipulus]: chorobayour words are reasonable
[choroba]: I'm just repeating some else's words as I remembered them after having asked the same question
[choroba]: s/some/someone/
Discipulus what a pity all people do not speak only in eatalian..
