( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I think that you are manually implementing inheritance. The following code:
use strict; use warnings 'all'; package A; sub _write_file { print "Writing in package A\n"; } sub write_file { my $self = shift; $self->_write_file(@_); } package A::B; use base qw/A/; sub new { my $class = shift; bless {} => $class; } sub _write_file { print "Writing in package A::B\n"; } my $writer = A::B->new; $writer->write_file;
prints "Writing in package A::B" (followed by a newline, of course!), which seems to be what you want. The point is that, even though write_file is a method in package A, it's calling _write_file on an object blessed into package A::B. Am I misunderstanding what you're trying to do?

Title:
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.
