in reply to Re: inheritance: constructors
in thread inheritance: constructors

In Noun::new(), you need to either defer blessing or re-bless after you've invoked SUPER::new(). Unless you do, Noun::new will return instances of Word.

This is not correct. The original author correctly designed the parent-class new constructor to bless based on the class it was called from-- in the case of the example above, Word::new will in fact bless the new object into the Noun class, because that is the value of $classname at that point.

[marto]: hopefully you guys are also well :)
[Corion]: marto: Yeah - I'm looking for a week off in a week, even if it'll be a trip to Amsterdam ;)
[Discipulus]: oh thanks, i'm always at well as the ratchet or bucket
[Corion]: But I'm slowly starting to get into programming again - yesterday I translated my talk for YAPC::E (in Amsterdam) to English, and decided to put my Jekyll-clone to rest for the time being
[Corion]: Discipulus++ # being well is like being earnest
[marto]: hopefully next year I'll be in a position to go to Perly things in Europe :)
[Corion]: Maybe I'll use the Real Jekyll a bit to get a feel for how it actually works, and to get annoyed by it ;)
[Corion]: marto: That would be cool :) There is no kids care at Perly events unfortunately, so it's not entirely family friendly
[Corion]: I think I should define a set of (say) five projects through which I rotate from time to time, just to prevent myself from being bored/annoyed by the problems they get stuck in ;)
[marto]: Corion, not bringing the kids would make it ideal :P
