This is an infinite loop
It's an infinite loop, but not for the reasons you state. SUPER:: is always relative to __PACKAGE__, and when you start saying sub Foo::bar, the __PACKAGE__ doesn't change to Foo, so you have a problem with SUPER.

In short, Don't Do That. Properly written code works properly:

package Base; sub do_me { my $self = shift; print "Base do_me\n"; } package Derived; @ISA = qw(Base); sub do_me { my ($self) = @_; # no shift, so we can goto print "About to jump...\n"; goto &{$self->can("SUPER::do_me")}; } package main; Derived->do_me;

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.
