Re^3: compile or run-time inheritance
in thread compile or run-time inheritance
Oh, come on! The issue with BEGIN has already been mentioned in previous posts. This love of accuracy we omit because it adds nothing to the core discussion.
And saying completely inaccurate statements like "You cannot have binding of methods before INIT" does add to the core discussion? How exactly? Especially when the OP is asking specifically about whether Perl handles things differently at "compile" and "run" time - to which the answer is no. It doesn't.
