( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

SUPER:: is always relative to __PACKAGE__, and when you start saying sub Foo::bar, the __PACKAGE__ doesn't change to Foo, so you have a problem with SUPER.

That's wrong.

#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; package Foo; sub bar { } package Baz; our @ISA = qw( Foo ); sub bar { my $self = shift; print $self->SUPER::can( "bar" ), "\n"; print $self->can( "SUPER::bar" ), "\n"; }; package main; print UNIVERSAL::can( Baz => "bar" ), "\n"; Baz->bar; __END__ CODE(0x815a230) CODE(0x815a230) CODE(0x813bc4c)

Interestingly enough, I thought I had tried the $self->can( "SUPER::foo" ) combination, but apparently I didn't. Huh.

Makeshifts last the longest.
