in reply to How to access main package global vars in modules

There are several alternative one line changes that do what you ask, such as:

  • Declare $glbA and $glbB with our in functions.pl
  • Refer to those variables in functions.pl with the fully qualified $main::glbA and $main::glbB
  • no strict "vars"

But none of the above is recommended. You would be much better in most scenarios to make functions.pl a package, and pass lexical variables as parameters to its functions.
