I almost never export anything from modules I write. I almost always:

use Wibble qw();

when I use modules. I means I have to:


when I need to call Wobble(), but at least I know where Wobble() lives that way even minutes, or months, after I wrote the code.

Using OO largely avoids the name space pollution problem that these measures seek to avoid without cluttering the code with explicit name space references.

True laziness is hard work
