isa Foo,Bar; # drops Bar and also spits out warning...
             # works same if you quote Bar, dies if Foo
             # is quoted or we're under strict
That's because it is using indirect object syntax.

Note that you can say:

isa Bar qw(Baz Bas Boo);
which is not so nice as there is no way to explain why "Bar" should be specified differently from "Baz", "Bas" and "Boo". Maybe a more consistent way of specifying multiple inheritance would be:
isa Bar, isa Baz, isa Bas, isa Boo;

main->isa(qw(Foo Bar)); # makes sense... pushes itself onto
                        # @ISA, though
This can be easily fixed in isa.pm:
-push @{caller().'::ISA'}, @_; +push @{caller().'::ISA'}, map {m#^main$# ? () : $_} @_;

... doesn't seem to be as clean of a solution as it could be.

I agree. I think I'll go back to just setting @ISA myself, and making sure they're run at compile time when I put several packages into one file.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>

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.
