in reply to Alternative ways to fully qualify subroutine names

Apart from using can (which is a great way), you can also do:

package A; sub b { print "called A::b\n"; } package main; my $pack='A'; { no strict 'refs'; &{"${pack}::b"}(); }

That is, creating a soft-ref to the sub on-the-fly.

Most of my code is tested...

Perl is strongly typed, it just has very few types (Dan)
