in reply to Module's name and file's name

      Could you explain me ?

The way Perl is "wired" when you have

use HR; # using your example
it checks all the directories in @INC for a file named "" and isn't going to look in ""

    Thank you.

    I know. That's why I use :

    use MyModule;

    That way, Perl finds the file "".

    But the the module's name is "HR" (as declared after "package"), not "MyModule".

    I think that it messes up something.

    I may be wrong.

    What do you think ?

    Thank you.

      It messes up clarity for the hacker who inherits your code. :P
