( [id://3333]=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

basically, i want to instantiate an object of the base class (Foo).then i want to instantiate an object of the subclass (Foo::Bar). i want the subclass object to know about the object data of the superclass object.

for some reason, the following feels dirty to me.. can anyone suggest a better way?:

package Foo; use strict; sub erf { my ($self) = shift; print $self->name(); } sub new { my ($proto, $args) = @_; my $class = ref($proto) || $proto; my $self = {}; if (ref($args) eq 'HASH') { if (exists $args->{'name'}) { $self->{'_name'} = $args->{'name'}; } else { return undef; } } else { $self->{'_name'} = $args->name(); } bless $self, $class; return $self; } sub name { my ($self) = shift; return $self->{'_name'}; } package Foo::Bar; use strict; @Foo::Bar::ISA = qw/Foo/; sub doit { my ($self) = shift; $self->erf(); } package main; use strict; my %hash = (name => 'Homer'); my $foo = Foo->new(\%hash); my $bar = Foo::Bar->new($foo); $bar->doit();

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
