chromatic is right. However the documentation for vars should be updated to make it clear that a vars declaration is actually package scoped, not file scoped. In other words that global has been declared, and will be considered declared in every file you encounter from then on as long as they are all in the same package. Of course if you are following good Perl tradition and writing lots of modules with private packages, the issue won't come up...
