Re^6: Correct syntax for using $INC to keep modules in same fileby perl-diddler (Friar)

You do so the same way you tell Perl that sort should load files and grep should shell out to Nethack.So you can't really say. That's why I listen but when told to leap over the cliff, I don't join the lemmings. When I asked that question on the p5p list, I was told "you don't", perl doesn't support using in-memory versions of modules, and we like it that way. It's not a matter of not being able to do it, it's religious zealotry.
I'm not working against perl, I'm working against the tainted Koolaid. I know it can be better, and I know people are against it being better. My code doesn't work when I try to follow the manpages and manual -- when I go all quirky -- that's when my code works. I hate myself later, but I resolve to keep pushing for change. Usually, the changes I want come about -- but usually happen long after people have forgotten that I tried to push for them years earlier.
I have trouble debugging my code? The reason I posted here was because perl claims to be UTF-8 compliant, but has a big whole in it's implementation -- in that it treats U+0-U-127 as Unicode, U+128-255 as Latin1, and U+256 and above as UTF-8. That's broken. That has nothing to do with the way I am programming.
You didn't answer my questions you just continue to speak in riddles referring grep to using nethack while not answering how what I was doing was re-implementing modules and was not implementing same-file Classes that perl lacks?
You seem to think perl doesn't change, but just looking at the changes from 5.10->5.12-- there was a change in isa -- it went from not working with inheritance to working;
"object->isa('Foo') would report false if the package Foo didn't exist, even if the object's @ISA contained Foobject->isa('Foo') would report false if the package Foo didn't exist, even if the object's @ISA contained Foo.
Bugs in autoload related to ISA were fixed, and autoload methods often didn't:"Various bugs in the new-to 5.10.0 mro code, triggered by manipulating @ISA, have been found and fixed.In the 5.10.0 release, a dynamically created AUTOLOAD method might be missed (method cache issue) RT #60220,60232."
What works in perl in any given release changes. It's documented. You may believe it hasn't changed, but oh well.
As for the previous anonidjit, knowing when to Export and when to make something a class is a sign of knowing your tools. Always using the same methodology for each problem is... a sure way to obsolescence.
