in thread Importing variables (not functions) from in-file packages
Thanks. I hadn't realized (and perhaps still don't fully understand) the difference between compile time vs. run time errors for variables and functions. But now that I think of it, I suppose this is consistent with the fact that variables need to be declared ahead of usage (if using strict) while function definitions can follow their usage.
Is there any analogy to the run-time "BEGIN" to tell the compiler to start (or branch elsewhere)?
