in reply to Re: $functions xor $methods
in thread $functions xor $methods

Only problem is that it requires a hardcoded 'parent' value (unless theres some way to return that?)
sub AUTOLOAD { if(defined &{__PARENT__::$AUTOLOAD}) { goto &{__PARENT__::$AUTOLOAD} } }
(note i left out the part about getting the right value in $AUTOLOAD, chopping out the package and stuff)

    something like this seems to work and doesn't require hardcoded names. it just grabs the first parent method (in @ISA order) it finds:
    sub AUTOLOAD { no strict; my $METHOD; ($METHOD = $AUTOLOAD) =~ s/.*:://; foreach my $PARENT (@ISA) { if(defined &{$PARENT.'::'.$METHOD}) { goto &{$PARENT.'::'.$METHOD} } } }
    either this, or use Damian's NEXT module.

    SUPER::$AUTOLOAD should work.
