in reply to Exec script within script or import sub...? help plz

do will "do" this.
Two files, one named "priv" and one named "unpriv". Their contents:
sub priv { print "Privileged\n"; }

sub priv { print "Unprivileged\n"; }

Now, in your main program, you can:
#!/usr/bin/perl do "unpriv"; priv(); do "priv"; priv();

Which when run:
> perl main Privileged Unprivileged >

[stevieb]: choroba just gleaned your post about Module::Starter. I use it too, pretty much for every dist I write
[LanX]: I remeber M::S (it was dialog driven?) to be buggy
[stevieb]: As far as Dist::Zilla goes, I don't like installing that other than on systems my test platorm runs on. I find it too heavy. I prefer being able to glean a Makefile.PL
[LanX]: what's frustrating me is that a distribution has lots of dupplicated info
[stevieb]: LanX I don't know if it's dialog driven; I just use it in the simplest of terms (just run module-starter at the CLI, and the very last couple of lines are how I use it.
[stevieb]: which dist are you speaking of regarding dups, LanX?
[LanX]: readme version number and so on ...
