Obviously is exporting the function into the MAIN namespace. Stop it exporting, then you can do:
use; for (1 .. 1000) { Spinner::spin(); } sub spin { print "i am the second spin() sub\n"; }
and you don't have a duplicate. Depending on the internals of Spinner, you may be able to do:
use Spinner();
to stop it importing into the MAIN namespace.

    Ahhhh... learned something new, thanks to your reply.

    So, yes, I want Spinner to export the spin() function, to save me from having to do Spinner::spin(), but now I know why I have it that way, and what to change if I decide not to export it.

    You've also shown us a different way to keep the subs separate, if need be.


      An option if you don't import it is to alias it to another name in your package.

      use Spinner (); local *s_pin = \&Spinner::spin; s_pin(); spin();
