in reply to Generalizing table display for subclass

How do you invoke this? (what do I plug in to get results -- you can't expect anyone to figure it out by looking at your code, use Data::Dumper to get *sample* data)

MJD says "you can't just make shit up and expect the computer to know what you mean, retardo!"
I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

    I'm sorry, I'm not entirely sure what to do to be able to supply sample data. This runs through several different modules, each one doing some other thing, and I don't know how to simplify it enough to show here.

    The immediate calling mechanism comes from the superclass, and looks like this, with the $sth coming from another module that handles the database querying:

    my @row; # construct a table header; store in @row push (@row, $self->_get_table_header(\@order)); # construct each table row; add to @row while (my $ref = $sth->fetchrow_hashref()) { # clean this up with named parameter calls? push (@row, $self->_get_table_row(\@order, $ref, $book, $rowcolor)); $rowcolor = ($rowcolor eq "lightrow" ? "darkrow" : "lightrow"); } $sth->finish(); print table ({width=>"95%"},-cellspacing=>"0"},@row);

    Sorry to keep bouncing back and forth like this, but: while I'm still not sure how to generate something from which you could run the code extract, the result of running it would look something like this:

    AuthorTitleDate acquired
    Bekman, Stas, and Eric Cholet Practical mod_perl (2003) 2003-06-30
    Burke, Sean M. Perl and LWP (2002) 2002-07-09
    Conway, Damian Object Oriented Perl (2000) 2000-07-25
    Hall, Joseph N., with Randal L. Schwartz Effective Perl Programming (1998) 2000-11-10

    Except that the links would work, and there would be alternating-colored rows, etc. I don't know if that helps anyone help me, but thank you anyway.
