in thread Dynamic Package Name & Subroutine Call

can should be used for methods and only for methods

that boat has sailed a long time ago :)

    That makes no sense. This isn't a change; can has never done the right thing for non-methods.

      sure it has :)

      $ perl -le " sub fudge { 42 } print main->can(q/fudge/)->() " 42
        That has always searched main's inheritance tree in the case where &main::fudge didn't exist, and that's not the right thing for subs.
