in reply to USE or Require?

I just dislike the namespace pollution that calling 'use' entails, such as not knowing exactly what functions it imports.

If the docs aren't enough, check the source. And if that isn't enough either, the call use with parameters, as in:

use CGI qw(:standard);
or for that matter,
use CGI ();
to import nothing. use is done at compiletime, and thus IMO is preferable in most cases. I only use require when I need to do conditional inclusion of something.

[perldigious]: Mine too thezip, especially my German Shepherd. He looks like he is about to die of heat exhaustion all summer, so he goes nuts when winter comes and he can play in the snow.
[stevieb]: my main off-road vehicle nowadays is a strengthened mercedes ML320. I'm very hard on it, but I've never had any real issues at all (I love how small and light it is, and it has a very, very good centre of gravity for how I roll)
[perldigious]: "for how I roll"... ahhh, I see what you did there stevieb.
