in reply to Packages and symbol tables

BEGIN { print "$_ => $Foo::{$_}\n" foreach keys %Foo::; }
is probably better in your specific case.

Anyway, my guess at what's going wrong is that base is trying to be clever in a way that you don't expect.

Since you're defining the packages in the same file, just drop the use base and do:

package Foo::Bar; our @ISA = 'Foo';
