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

The short answer is that you can't. You need to dispatch the methods to the "base class" yourself instead of letting perl do it through @ISA, because you need to use ident on the invoker first. In other words, you need to wrap the "base class" instead of inheriting from it.

It can be done by removing the use base and adding one of the following functions:

sub AUTOLOAD { my $method = substr($AUTOLOAD, rindex($AUTOLOAD, '::')+2); my $code_ref = File::Samba->can($method); if (!$code_ref) { require Carp; Carp::croak("Undefined subroutine $method called"); } # Create stub functions to avoid calling # AUTOLOAD more than necessary. my $stub = sub { # This only works with methods, # and only if they are non-static. local $_[0] = ident $_[0]; &$code_ref; }; { no strict 'refs'; *$method = $stub; } goto($stub); }

or

sub AUTOLOAD { my $method = substr($AUTOLOAD, rindex($AUTOLOAD, '::')+2); my $code_ref = File::Samba->can($method); if (!$code_ref) { require Carp; Carp::croak("Undefined subroutine $method called"); } # Don't create stub functions to avoid # clearing perl's method cache repeatedly. # See http://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=505443 # This only works with methods, # and only if they are non-static. local $_[0] = ident $_[0]; goto($code_ref); }

You might want to override can method to check File::Samba in addition to your class. The following should do the trick, but it's untested:

sub can { my $p = shift(@_); return UNVERSAL::can($p, @_) || File::Samba->can(@_); }

The above function have been tested (IIRC), but to a limited extent.

There may be a better method.

Update: Various bits added for roundness.

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).
