In general, I like your approach - a lot.
<blush />
One thing that annoyed me is the $self->self meme.

Me to, but like you I cannot see a way round it. I've just renamed it self_id in my local version.

That aside, here's my take on the base class - minus refaddr cause it doesn't work on 5.6.1.

Are you sure? It's basically the same implementation as the one here.

What I do is quite simple: store the hashref to the pad :-). Then all that AUTOLOAD has to do is trawl through the pad hashrefs and look for a matching attribute.

Falls over completely on 5.8.0. Probably because of this :-)

I like your use of an array to store the class hashes in. Makes the logic easier to understand. Might be a problem in the context of serialisation - since the position of the hash depends on the load order of the classes used by your application. You could always store a class->position mapping I guess.

I don't know if it's watertight, though. In particular, how well will it work if I call an accessor for a superclasses' field on a subclass?

There's the begining of a test suite in the version at if you're interested.

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 editor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
