Odd behavior when package and sub names are identical? My first suggestion is "don't do that." Perl is probably resolving its subs based, at least partly, on which ones it sees first, so it will use the first one it finds. I don't think this is either a bug or an inconsistency; it's a design decision. It does mean that the order subs are defined matters, which is not a concern unique to Perl: quite a few linkers do the same thing.
