OK, so forget uplevel and just reimplement what base actually does. It's a pity didn't do it right from the start. If you're going to act like "use" then you should do it properly.

As for a just a few characters, I really have a problem with that. I don't mind a few characters extra for some things but this is perfect case of when I do mind because the few characters are a repetition of information (not just, say, some extra syntax).

That means that if I need to change the base class, I need to remember to change both occurrences. This breaks the rule of having 1 source for every piece of information and leads to subtle errors. In this case it's fairly easy to keep them in sync as they're beside each other but in another way that makes it even worse because it would be so easy to fix.

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.
