|Subject:||Problem with add_constructor and inheritance|
IMO add_constructor is semi-broken. If a have a base Class: MyApp and do MyApp->add_constructor(retrieve_public,'some sql'); and a class inheriting from MyAll, MyAll::SpecialCase in which I want to set another constructor 'retrieve_public', via MyApp::SpecialCase->add_constructor(retrieve_public,'some ohter sql'); Class::DBI croaks "$method already exists in $class" This happens because add_costructor checks $class->can($method), when IMO it should check if there is a CODE-Typeglob (or whatever this is called) in the actual package. The attached patch changes the behaviour of add_constructor to allow subclassing of constructors. I didn't take a closer look if this problem occures in other comparable methods, too.
