Off the top of my head :)

It should work the way you expect if you change to

my $callback = sub { ... }; HTML::LinkExtor->new($callback);

FWIW, you probably got some warnings about this (will not stay shared)

    Indeed, that change doe make things work! Is there somewhere I an further read to understand where I went wrong?

    Infinitely grateful for your help - that darn thing was giving me public fits ;)

      I linked it already, just follow the linked links :)

      The error message Variable "%s" will not stay shared is described in perldiag. The description is brief but explains the behavior you experienced. You can also read about closure in perlref, perlsub and elsewhere.

      This is why you don't nest named subs, the closure becomes "static"

      perl -E " sub f{ my %g; sub g{say \%g; } g(); say \%g; \%g } say f(),$/ for 1 .. 4;"

      perl -E ' sub f{ my %g; sub g{say \%g; } g(); say \%g; \%g } say f(),$/ for 1 .. 4; '

      HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0x3f9b6c) HASH(0x3f9b6c) HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0x3f9b8c) HASH(0x3f9b8c) HASH(0xabd9c4) HASH(0x3f9b6c) HASH(0x3f9b6c)

      By making the nested subroutine a variable (also known as an anonymous sub), the closure is dynamic

      $ perl -lE " sub f{ my %g; my $g = sub {say \%g; $g{1}++}; $g->(); say \%g; \%g } say f(),$/ for 1 .. 4;"

      HASH(0xabd9d4) HASH(0xabd9d4) HASH(0xabd9d4) HASH(0x3f9b1c) HASH(0x3f9b1c) HASH(0x3f9b1c) HASH(0x99b374) HASH(0x99b374) HASH(0x99b374) HASH(0x99b344) HASH(0x99b344) HASH(0x99b344)
