in thread [parrot] parrot prototype OO?

Hmmm, find_method seems to be called on the superclass, and not the class (or on the class and not the object). So if I try to use, say, objects, should I return a method that inspects the object (and its parent* slots) and then calls the correct method? Because that sounds like I'm implementing AUTOLOAD.

Here's my naive code. I don't seem to be making good use of the class machinery so far:

.namespace [ 'MyStuff'; 'TestProt' ] .sub 'autoload' :method #inspect object and parents here .end .sub 'find_method' :vtable .param pmc arg0 .param pmc arg1 .local pmc autoload new_method = find_name 'autoload' .return(new_method) .end .sub main :main $P1 = new [ 'MyStuff'; 'TestProt'] $P1.hi() .end

I didn't believe in evil until I dated it.
