in thread Exporting functions into main namespace for the benefit of other use'd modules
Looking at that, I'm already wondering
my $app = Foo::App->new();
I'm still not seeing anything in your proposed design that offers anything that's not implementable in a proper design as suggested by others in this thread.
- Why "use Foo" and not "use Foo::App"?
- Why would there be anything else in main?
Maybe what you really have is an example of a specific derived class that inherits these common functions from a base class.
Or maybe something else entirely.
But I'd be very confused if I had "package My::Package" and then found that there were other subroutines that poofed into my namespace when I hadn't specifically imported them. Argh!
