( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

To find the package in which the method was found:

use mro qw( ); use Scalar::Util qw( blessed ); sub get_package { my ($obj, $method_name) = @_; defined( my $class = blessed($obj) ) or return undef; for my $pkg_name (@{ mro::get_linear_isa($class) }) { my $pkg = do { no strict qw( refs ); *{ $pkg_name.'::'.$method_name } }; return $pkg_name if *{$pkg}{CODE}; } return undef; }

Note: Doesn't work if the method is autoloaded.


To find the package in which the method was compiled:

use B qw( svref_2object ); sub get_package { my ($obj, $method_name) = @_; my $method_ref = $obj->can($method_name) or return undef; return svref_2object($method_ref)->GV->STASH->NAME; }

Note: Only works for autoloaded methods if can is properly overridden.

Note: Works for methods implemented in XS.


To find the file in which the method was compiled:

use B qw( svref_2object ); sub get_package { my ($obj, $method_name) = @_; my $method_ref = $obj->can($method_name) or return undef; return svref_2object($method_ref)->FILE; }

Note: Only works for autoloaded methods if can is properly overridden.

Note: Only works well for Perl methods. For methods implemented in XS, it returns the name of the .c file with no path. For example, returns XS.c for JSON::XS->encode. (This may vary by system, and by XS loader.)

Title:
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.
