aeshirey has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I'm working on some web-based scripts that do a bit of file manipulation. While I can't combine them, I'd like for them to be able to share some of the same functionality.
In the first file I've made, I've reduced the complexity such that it simply calls a subroutine that does the work. All I would need to do now is run this subroutine for the other files, passing a single scalar to the subroutine.
I'm a bit of a newb, so talk of modules and such will be over my head, but what's the best way to share code between different scripts, allowing for the passing of variables?
