in reply to symbol tables and class data members

You must qualify @aa because it's a package variable, and under 'use strict' you must qualify all package variables. If something is in the symbol table, it must be fully-qualified under strict unless you've declared it with 'our'. (Or use vars if you're not on the latest Perl.)

It seems to me that what you want is a way of doing symbol-table hacking with lexical vars, and I'm afraid that that's not possible because lexical vars don't appear in the symbol table.

I'd suggest declaring your vars with 'our'.

    I guess I should explain that the package Foo is functioning as a class and Test as a method of that class. I was trying to find an easy way of converting existing package-oriented code into class-based code. That is, move globals to be data members and not have to struggle rewriting all the uses of those globals.
