in reply to How to pass an argument to a Module?

I would prefer to write an ordinary subroutine to initialize the global variables at run-time. (Same general idea as the OO "new")

    Something like this?

    use Mod; Mod->initialize('argument');
    I'm going to try.

      If you module is a class, you have written a call to a class method. (That is even better than what I had in mind.) If not, the initialize function would have to be written, passed, and called the same way as every other function in the module.

        I just tried it on a simple package and it works :o)
        You're right, as it's not a class i'm doing:

        use Mod; Mod::initialize('argument');

        It is more simple than the previous solutions, and does what i need. Thank you !

        It is less 'elegant' though : there is an additional line of code to put in the client code, each time.
        If someone knows how to use IMPORT i'm still interested in learning.
