How the EXPORT is useful in OO programming of perl
Please note as a general rule, if the module is trying to be object oriented (OO) as stated in the OP, then export nothing.
Check the example below:

package Student; use warnings; use strict; sub new { my $type = shift; my $class = ref($type) || $type; my $self = { name => shift // "No name", score => shift // 0, }; return bless( $self, $class ); } sub name { my $self = shift; $self->{'name'} = shift // $self->{'name'}; return $self->{'name'}; } sub score { my $self = shift; $self->{'score'} = shift // $self->{'score'}; return $self->{'score'}; } 1;
Then that is called in the .pl script like so:, without the Exporting any subroutine
#!/usr/bin/perl -l use warnings; use strict; use Student; # the module used my $std = Student->new(); print join " - " => ( $std->name(), $std->score() ); # prints No name +- 0 my $std2 = Student->new( "melchi", 78 ); print join " - " => ( $std2->name(), $std2->score() ); # prints melchi + - 78 print join " - " => ( $std->name("kunle"), $std2->score(90) ); # print +s kunle - 90
You might what to check, perlobj, perlmod, perlmodlib
Hope this helps.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.
