in reply to A general method of locally overriding subroutines

There is a module that provides this facility:
use Sub::Override; use strict; use warnings; $, = ' '; $\ = "\n"; sub a{ 'a' } sub b{ 'b' } sub c{ 'c' } sub d{ ( a, b, c ) }; print d(); { my $override = Sub::Override->new; $override->replace(a => sub { "changed" }) ->replace(b => sub { "changed" }) ->replace(c => sub { "changed" }); print d(); } print d();
a b c changed changed changed a b c Tool completed successfully

    That's a really neat way to do it. I used a similar technique for File::pushd -- using an object to enact a localized change that is reverted when the object goes out of scope.

      Isn't it nice to have deterministic behavior that fires when an object goes out of scope? I miss that when working in java.
