in reply to Share Variable in Script with a Module

I modified your module slightly as follows:

package my_module; $VERSION = '1.00'; use strict; use Data::Dumper; our $gMessage; sub import { ($gMessage) = @_; print Dumper(\@_); print "Yep, I'm in here ... \n\n"; } &my_sub(); sub my_sub { print "Yep, I'm in here, too ... \n\n"; print $gMessage; } 1;

And this is the resulting output:

$ ./ Yep, I'm in here, too ... $VAR1 = [ 'my_module', 'xyz' ]; Yep, I'm in here ...

That should clarify why you do not see 'xyz' being printed.

On time, cheap, compliant with final specs. Pick two.
