in reply to Help needed understanding global variables in Perl

I have several cgi scripts that use the same file. My problem is that I had trouble referencing the %config hash. If I move the 'our %CONFIG = ();' to the file I get errors, but if I declare it in main:: all is OK. Since doesn't have a package identifier, I was under the impression that it became part of main:: #!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; our %CONFIG = (); # need to declare the config vars, fails if moved to require "" ; # set the config variables require ""; # common routines for link exhange require ""; # common routines for all my cgi's
