in thread avoiding overwriting variables in an inherited class

Thank you for your replies .... sorry for taking a while to get back - I had some login problems as I have never posted to this site before! Hopefully now resolved.

The fact this is an issue is a message that I do in fact have some kind of comprehension about the whole thing. Fantastic!!!

After some initial difficulties (duh??) I have been reading more about inside-out objects and I have to agree with the poster that these must be the way forward.. alternatively using Moose? (your comments welcome) which negates the worry.

in general i am surprised by Perl's OO as I am used to Perl being well thought out. I guess OO is always a subjective thing (higher level than the sequential stuff?). ie gives more flexibility but also an enormous number of ways of doing things?

    You could also use Moose, but (as someone who only does Moose when it's on my plate), Moose has always struck me more as a lifestyle than a solution to a problem; its community is not as cultish as some of the webframeworks, but they're on the edge.

    But hey, if it works for you, more power to you.
