Well, I think I goofed on this one. From reading A12, it appears that anonymous classes are built and bound to objects that use mixins. I missed that point and now it seems like we're going to have inheritance problems again. When I posted a question about this to the Perl 6 language list, Larry Wall responded:

That's just a problem with run-time mixins in general if you can't know in advance that you're going to want both roles. That's why we encourage as much of that to be done at compile time as possible.

This does seem like it will cause more design issues, but Larry and TheDamian both had ways around this. They suggested strategies such as creating anonymous classes or anonymous roles that could disambiguate methods as needed. I guess that makes sense as magician thieves would want the magic users spell-casting ability but the thief's fighting ability and those seem like rules that might have to be decided at compile time.

You can read the Perl 6 language discussion here.

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.
