in reply to find the package name of an inherited object from inside the parent

__PACKAGE__ is a constant like __FILE__ and __LINE__. What you might want is ref, which returns the class a reference is blessed into.

Just be advised that outside of debugging, there is very little you should do based on the class name.

    Oh yeah! ref($self)! That really was a stupid question, apologies...
