I think the only real problem that you might encounter is copying the actual formats about. The problem is that there's no way of directly copying them unlike the other data types e.g
format foo = . { package mypkg; *form_foo = *main::foo; *form_ref = *form_foo{FORMAT}; } use Devel::Peek; Dump(*main::foo); Dump(*mypkg::form_foo); Dump(*mypkg::form_ref); __output__ SV = PVGV(0x80f9c78) at 0x8100de8 ... FORM = 0x80fd4e4 SV = PVGV(0x80f9dc0) at 0x8100e24 ... FORM = 0x80fd4e4 SV = PVGV(0x8101820) at 0x8100e3c ... FORM = 0x0
So you'll have to end up exporting entire globs into the given packages, which isn't ideal.


update: changed FORM to FORMAT

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
  • Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
  • Read Where should I post X? if you're not absolutely sure you're posting in the right place.
  • Please read these before you post! —
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags:
    a, abbr, b, big, blockquote, br, caption, center, col, colgroup, dd, del, div, dl, dt, em, font, h1, h2, h3, h4, h5, h6, hr, i, ins, li, ol, p, pre, readmore, small, span, spoiler, strike, strong, sub, sup, table, tbody, td, tfoot, th, thead, tr, tt, u, ul, wbr
