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

Sometimes (especially if you have an object-oriented project, with many little packages), it's not convenient to have each package in a speparate file.
If you are doing OO programming in Perl, you don't need to import anything. Using packages as libraries and exporting subroutines into a user space is actually a direct contradiction with a rigid OO model.
Please note that this still doesn't work: the .pm module fails, complaining that the second @ISA is a bareword.
That's because you're violating strict. Try our:
package pack_B; use strict; require Exporter; our @ISA = qw {Exporter}; our @EXPORT = qw {third fourth}; sub third { } sub fourth { } 1;

#11929 First ask yourself `How would I do this without a computer?' Then have the computer do it the same way.

    Thank you, kennethk. That works (provided that you use "our @ISA" and "our @EXPORT" both in the first (pack_A) and the second (pack_B) packages).

    Many thanks - Helen

[stevieb]: I don't know what you mean. I write the code in C/C++ that accesses the ICs per the datasheet, wrap it for Perl, then use them. My code ensures that the functions/methods from Perl do the right thing for the chips/sensors etc
[stevieb]: At least that's what I'm working on right now. I've also been updating my automated test software Test::BrewBuild so it handles this work properly. It's not really easy meshing high level languages with low-level hardware :)
[stevieb]: this link is probably better for an overview of my test software
