  • This is another reason why base.pm is deprecated. It has to solve the same problem and there's no way to know if a class is partial.

    You'll also see this if the class exists but it failed during loading. You can still find the parts taht succeeded in the symbol table but you'll just be missing "the rest" and you don't have any way to know how much else "the rest" is.

    • Yeah, partial compilation has bitten me hard at times. Very unfortunate. I wonder if it's useful to have a module which attempts to clean up after bad loads?

      • Snapshots the symbol table and reverts it on failure? I wish git worked /inside/ perl.
