in thread How to export a package sitting lower in a module?

Corion: note that the two packages are sitting in the same module file.
Like I said, it's not straightforward to export from a package which sits lower in a module. Please try to run this module: it doesn't work - it gives errors:
# Name of this file: package pack_A; use strict; require Exporter; @ISA = qw {Exporter}; @EXPORT = qw {first second}; sub first { } sub second { } 1; #end package pack_A; package pack_B; use strict; require Exporter; @ISA = qw {Exporter}; @EXPORT = qw {third fourth}; sub third { } sub fourth { } 1; #end package pack_B; #end of file
with the main script:
use pack_B;
# or use pack_A; ?

    That's how use works. It works best if you put separate packages into separate files.

    If you don't want to do that, but still want to use Exporter, you have to call pack_B->import yourself, just like use describes.

    use pack_A; # implicitly calls pack_A->import() pack_B->import(); # explicitly call pack_B->import()

    But maybe you really do not want to have both, pack_A and pack_B in a single file?
