in thread brian's Guide to Solving Any Perl Problem
Most style guides I work under ask for the full package name of external functions, and I generally agree with that. I have found that I shouldn't expect others to know where all of these functions came from. Also, I don't have to keep track of every modules exports. Some decided to have the same names for things. Remember: @EXPORT is evil.
This way would cause a problem if someone wanted to use YAML as a drop in replacement, though.
