Hi Monks. I am writing a library of utilities to be used by Perl scripts. The library contains some constants, some generic functions and some object oriented classes. For practicality I like to put all these packages in one file, to make distribution easy (no subdirectories etc) So the layout of the file looks something like this:
package STDLIB; use Exporter() some constants i like to export some functions i like to export package OBJECT1 some object constants i like to export like my OBJ1_CONSTANT1; my OBJ1_CONSTANT2; some methods package OBJECT2 some object constants i like to export like my OBJ2_CONSTANT1; my OBJ2_CONSTANT2; some methods 1;
I managed to export the generic functions and constants but whatever I try, I can't seem to export the OO constants. Would someone be able to show me how to do this? Would I have to add multiple use Exporter; statements to each package? Do i have to end each package with 1; ? Or only one Exporter statement? And in the parent program, can restrict the import to only 1 package so something like:
Any pointers appreciated!
