in reply to Calling variables from external file, with strict

Do you really need the config file to define lexical variables --- or would populating a config hash suffice? If so there are various config modules on CPAN. A very simple and direct method is to define an anonymous hash in the config file and capture it via require --- as in this node. As erikharrison mentions, any code evaluation solution (as opposed to a parsing solution) means you trust the code in the config file.
