Well, it depends. If you are using roles, there are a couple of ways of resolving conflicts, but basically it works out as:

class Elf is Character does Thief does Scout { method hide { .Scout::hide(@_) } ... }

However, if you prefer, you can have your cake and eat it too.

method hide ($self: $action) { # $self is required here because the topicalizer assigns # $action to $_ given $action { when Skulking { $self.Thief::hide($action) } when Stalking { $self.Scount::hide($action) } } }

And that's nice because theoretically, if your elf knows various professions, she should know how the activities with those professions vary, just as one person might know how to drive a race car but wouldn't think of doing that with a dump truck, even though both activies are driving.

Unfortunately, when it comes to your specific example with mixins, I'm a little less clear about disambiguation. When you use a role at runtime on an instance, you get new anonymous classes that are related to the instance via inheritance. Thus, the following has the inheritance ordering problem again:

$elf does Thief does Sentry;

In that example, $elf.hide calls Sentry.hide as Thief.hide is further up the inheritance tree. This seems to limit the utility of mixins, but I can't be sure. Further clarification would be nice.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
