See the documentation for Exporter. Basically anything you list in @EXPORT_OK will be available for import by name into other modules which use the exporting module, and anything you list in @EXPORT will be imported automatically into useing modules. It's generally considered better style to use @EXPORT_OK, or to use a named tag in %EXPORT_TAGS, but if the whole purpose of your module is to provide constants @EXPORT may be OK.

Your module might look something like this:

package MyConst; use warnings; use strict; use base 'Exporter'; use vars qw(@EXPORT_OK %EXPORT_TAGS); @EXPORT_OK = qw($const1); %EXPORT_TAGS = (all => \@EXPORT_OK); # ...

And the module using it would begin like this:

use MyConst qw(:all);
