in thread Stopping a package from infesting my namespace
Hey! Thanks for looking into this so much! I really appreciate it.
Your findings with regards to tokenClass seem to be echoed throughout the design of Parse::Lex; it doesn't appear very friendly to the notion of more than one being instantiated (which is to say it can work, but you have to tiptoe around it!).
OTOH, your eval trick looks pretty much perfect! I imagine it'll go into the new package this way (as it'll appear to be the callee), though it's a slightly hacky way of doing it.
In the end, I just made my lexer non-reentrant, and it hides the unsightliness under the interface. But if I end up going about this another way, it'll likely be as you suggest!
