in reply to Core module: Attribute::Handlers behaviour

Hello PerlMonks,

I understand the trick "BrowserUk" has suggested. I tried to implement the same as below but it is always giving me error as

Can't locate object method "new" via package "Module"

Module.pm

package Module; use Attribute::Handlers; sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE,BEGIN) { my ($pkg, $sym, $ref, $attr, $data, $phase, $file, $line) = @_; *{ $sym } = sub { warn "$file($line) called with [@_]\n"; my( @rc )= &$ref; warn "$file($line): returning [ @rc ]\n"; } } sub new :TRACE{ my $instance = shift; my $class = ref($instance) || $instance; my $self = {}; return bless($self, $class); } 1;

Test.pl

#!/usr/local/bin/perl my $module_to_load = 'Module'; eval "use $module_to_load;"; # Create object my $obj = Module->new(); print "CLASS: " . ref($obj) ."\n";

When i'm changing the execution phase in ATTR to INIT,CHECK - module gets compiled successfully but ATTR TRACE is not called. And when i change the phase to BEGIN, I'm getting the above error message.

I need your help to understand why my Test.pl is not able to find "new()" method in Module.pm when Attribute::Handers are called at BEGIN phase.

Thanks

    I don't get that, even though your module doesn't return an object ( compared to Attribute::Constructor ), trace gets called if the phase is BEGIN

    $ perl -le " eval qq/use Junk;/; print Junk->new " Junk.pm(22) called with [Junk] Junk.pm(22): returning [ Junk=HASH(0x3f8d1c) ] 1 $ cat Junk.pm package Junk; use Attribute::Handlers; #~ sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE,CHECK) { #~ sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE,INIT,CHECK) { #~ sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE,INIT) { sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE,BEGIN) { #~ sub TRACE :ATTR(CODE) { my ($pkg, $sym, $ref, $attr, $data, $phase, $file, $line) = @_; *{ $sym } = sub { warn "$file($line) called with [@_]\n"; my( @rc )= &$ref; warn "$file($line): returning [ @rc ]\n"; } } sub new :TRACE { my $instance = shift; my $class = ref($instance) || $instance; my $self = {}; return bless($self, $class); } 1;
