IMO, constructors should only construct the object, and not initiate them. If you do so, multiple inheritance becomes even more a pain than it already is.

Suppose for instance there are two classes which you didn't write yourself (get them from CPAN, from a coworker, elsewhere). Both of them initiate the object returned from the constructor in the constructor themselves. Perhaps one of the classes uses a blessed hashref as object, the other the inside-out objects from Damians book. If the classes don't initiate the object in the constructor, MI is possible. If they do, MI is either impossible, or it's going to be hard.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
