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

I'm using a home-rolled OO helper class. Its a simple subclass of Class::MethodMaker -- basically my subclass allows the naming of 'required' fields, and the constructor asserts if an object is created lacking a required field.

My question: if I have a class Foo (built with my OO helper class), is there a nice way to subclass it (creating "BigFoo"), keeping Foo setters and getters, and adding in some new "big" functionality and methods, allowing me to add functionality to the subclass with all the niceness of Class::MethodMaker? That is, can I subclass a C:MM class using something like C:MM, to get all those convenient helper construction methods?

Thanks for your advice --



Sorry my question was not clear.

I know I can subclass classes built with C:MM... I'd like to build those subclasses using C:MM:

package BigFoo; use base 'Foo'; # bogus code, just to give the idea use Class::MethodMaker subclassof => 'Foo', get_set => [ qw /BigFoo BigBaz/ ], list => [qw(BigList)];

  • 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).
