And you think none of us tested this already and we all were too modest to post a code that works???


The parser needs to see the declaration before it parses the barewords.

BEGIN-blocks don't change the parsing order, only the runtime order!

to be precise BEGIN-Block are run at parsing time, but the parsing order doesn't change. see perlmod

    Of course (about everybody being modest:>).

    In any case this did remind me of the reason to generate subs in BEGIN block near the very start of a module.
