( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hi Monks, I have a module set to manage Video files for our Knowledge Management system. The interface is something like this

use ManVideo; my $mv = new ManVideo( DB => $dbhRef ); $mv -> newVideoRecord ( Trainer => "someone", Year => 2011, VideoType +=> "training" ); $mv -> save();

And now, my next task is almost the same, and yet identical , but this time is for audio. So I may use the same framework, by giving different DB handle. However, although I can completely use ManVideo::* to do the job, however this is odd to use the same interface to write my source code for Audio like this : $audio = newVideoRecord ( ... )

So, is there any simple (and safe) hack, so that I can create another module set, namely ManAudio, looks like :

my $aud = new ManAudio; $aud -> newAudioRecord( ..., AudioType => "meeting" ) ;# implement by +ManVideo::newVideoRecord;

One thing that might be a little complex is that I might need to do some pre-process on the arguments. As shown in above code is AudioType=>"meeting". I have to change AudioType to VideoType before passing to newVideoRecord(). ( This return me a list of authorize staffs to view/listen )

Thank you very much in advance for any clues.
