in reply to Encapsulate function and variables

For most practical purposes, you can treat a namespace exactly as if it were a hash.

sub capsule { my($capsule_name, $file) = @_; my $src = slurp $file; eval "package $capsule_name; \n#line 1\n$src" or die $@; } [...] capusle("Foo", ""); print $Foo::{text};

An alternative is to load everything into a dummy package with a throwaway name, then to export everything out of it. Of course, both these proposals break if switches namespaces itself, and that's hard to catch.
