What you can do is write your subroutines in seperate perl (.pl) files. Whenever you need to call them, all you need to do is include them with your code (use the require statement). Each file should end with a true expression, traditionally 1;.

    Hi, dont forget the 1; at the end of the require "file"; where file is:
    #!/usr/bin/perl sub one{ print "one"; } 1;
    otherwise the compiler wont be happy;-)
