Thanks Adam.
That seems to have done the job!

Hi Alan


use EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;
sub EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff::method_name
                print ?2?;

?in your cfg.d file.

Subject: [EP-tech] Overriding subroutines

Hi all,
I?m currently trying to override a subroutine from a plugin module, by redefining it in the local cfg.d file.

package EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;
sub method_name { print 1;}

and in <EPRINTS_ROOT>/archives/<MY_ARCHIVE>/cfg/cfg.d/zzz_stuff_plugin_local.pl  I have

package EPrints::Plugin::Screen::MyPlugin::Stuff;
sub method_name { print 2;}

when I restart the server I get the print 1;  statement.   If I change the subroutine name in the plugin (under lib/plugins?.) then restart the server I get the print 2; statement so it appears to be loading the plugin after the local version?  I thought these happened the other way round?
