in reply to Best practice with polymorphic constructors

Please correct me if I am wrong or missing something. It seems to me that the module name in the config file is primarily a "key" to identify the particular user/password pair you are using. So why not structure the config file thus:
<mydb> <config user="fooser" pass="foo" /> <modify user="barser" pass="bar" /> </mydb>
(Or, you could specify a database or any other information in there.) Then you could retrieve the credentials based on the functionality, not the module name. Does that make sense?

HTH, --traveler

[stonecolddevin]: o/ planetscape
[Sinistral]: I think that just the sight of his username now causes a downvote storm. I agree, and the gratuitous use of formatting does make reading hard. I've given him +1 on things where there seemed to be actual good advice, but I think the big
[Sinistral]: nail in coffin was the rant against a Schwarzian Transform
[stonecolddevin]: at best, from what i've seen, his knowledge is accurate up to maybe 2002. the sheer volume of words is mostly worthy of a downvote in most cases though i think
[erix]: ITYM Schwartzian Transform :P
[erix]: hey planetscape :)
[planetscape]: howdy stonecolddevin, erix
[Sinistral]: eric Aye. I thought I typed that wrong. All hail Randall! I listen to him on FLOSS Weekly
[Discipulus]: i think his vacuus, trombon like, absence of meaning, joined with a ostentatious style, after many years irritates the most
[erix]: easy to get wrong -- I guess that was sund's point, too :P
