in thread Testing -- making a new constructor behave differently for one package

Why does it assume that? The around new => sub {}; stuff doesn't need to be in the same file where the Foo class is defined. I'd probably put it in the ".t" file.

    That actually never occurred to me. Excellent point and it would have been another way to accomplish my objective. Thanks for the insight.

[atcroft]: stevieb: Sad to say that I only recently learned that particular trick, but I have since found it very useful.... :)
[james28909]: ill be back with a solution eventually
[stevieb]: it's a reminder to re-inforce it :P
[atcroft]: james28909: That particular questions was a bit of trick, actually (depending on the country you are in). More interesting is, if you are trying to subtract from an epoch time, for instance, you might have to consider when/if DST occurs for a location,
[atcroft]: because you may have to adjust the number of seconds you change from an epoch from 86400 (not to mention leap seconds)....
[atcroft]: james28909: Although if your program is using a database, you might be able to "pass the buck" to the database and ask it to do the date change for you....
