in thread How do create a variable in another package in Perl?

This is needed when the VariableName and the value of the variable(here (1,2,3)) are both determined on the fly

    In which case it isn't needed. Use a hash instead, or maybe some other construct entirely. Show us sample code where you think such a thing is needed and we'll show you a much better way to do it.

    True laziness is hard work

    Hello, I have small joke for you :D

    <GoodHumor>

    I agree with moritz :) there is a strong suggestion of an interface design problem, a strong suggestion for a need to just pass args

    Here is my complete analysis

    • +1 key phrase "in another package"
    • +1 newbee key phrase "in Perl"
    • +1 asking for the syntax
    • +1 while posessing the key keyword (package) to find the correct syntax
    • +1 key phrase "is needed"
    • +1 key phrase "on the fly"
