Anonymous Monk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm still writing perl 4 style code. I hope to change that soon. In the meantime, we have some large in-house scripts calling many subroutines, contained in several .inc files.
Opinion here is divided as to whether each .inc file should contain appropriate use and require statements for the subroutines it contains, or if the subroutines themselves should contain those statements as required.
I would be grateful to know which is the safest and most efficient method.
