in reply to Database design and Class::DBI

I would have the product object initialize three member vars when it is constructed: $sale_price, $list_price, and $cost_price. Each having the obvious accessors get_sale_price(), get_list_price(), and get_cost_price(). And, I would leave it up to whatever is using the product object to choose which price is appropriate to it's needs.

Is there a specific reason you cannot do it that way? Are applications alrady using the get_price() call and expecting the product object to return the appropriate price?
