in reply to use x; equivalent

pack is a Perl keyword, so the parser doesn't know what to do with that construct. I suggest changing the name of your module.

Of course, if the documentation had shown the unbroken way to call class methods, you wouldn't have had this problem:

BEGIN { require pack; pack::->import(); }

Update: fixed the code to use the really unambiguous way.

    Even using your 'unbroken' way, I get

    Not enough arguments for pack at -e line 1, near "pack;" Not enough arguments for pack at -e line 1, near "pack->import" BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at -e line 1.

    Thank you chromatic et al. I changed the name to packe and it worked.

    I was also wondering how to get debug from the importer, I thought this might work, but no. it doesn't print anything.

    BEGIN { require packe; $Exporter::Verbose=1; import packe; }
