Understanding module structure and inheritanceby bradcathey (Prior)
|on Jan 30, 2008 at 13:19 UTC||Need Help??|
bradcathey has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm trying to get my head around my directory/file structure and how code gets passed around. To experiment I have laid out the barest of an example that still works, though I normally use CGI::Application and HTML::Template, but other than the instance script, the layout can be pretty much the same.
Questions: 1) General—is this a plausible layout? 2) Specific—why do I have to include use Common.pm in my Contact.pm, when it is using Main as base and Main already includes Common.pm? Other questions: what is inheriting what? if anything? or what could be inherited? and is that even the right word? Thanks in advance.
