in thread [Moose] extends(...) throws "Subroutine redefined" warnings

The thought has passed my mind briefly, I think, but I rejected it because I do want to be able to just use MyClass; and automatically have SubClass available.

However, it turns out you're right: if I move use SubClass out of it just works fine. So I've come up with this workaround:

  • Have one wrapper package which loads all classes and subclasses
    (so that the script useing MyClass only needs one use statement to have it all)
  • Make it so that the wrapper package inherits all methods from the base class
    (so that all methods on the base class work when called on the wrapper package)
  • Have the base class as before, but without it useing its subclass, and now named 'BaseClass'
  • Have the subclass as before, but with extends 'BaseClass' instead.

# package MyClass; use BaseClass; # load the base class use SubClass; # load the sub class (which now extends BaseClass) our @ISA = qw(BaseClass); # have all BaseClass methods work on MyClass 1;
# package BaseClass; use Moose; sub get_subclass_object { return SubClass->new; } 1;
# package SubClass; use Moose; extends 'BaseClass'; 1;

    It strikes me that your original scenario is along these lines (in non-Moose perl):

    # use PkgB; ... 1;
    # use PkgA; ... 1;

    It is a dependency loop.
