Well, ... isn't sufficient for reproducing

Anyway the error message I get is Use of uninitialized value $Foo::a in numeric comparison (<=>) at - line 2.

#!/usr/bin/perl -- use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/ dd /; { package Foo; sub Foo::comp { $b <=> $a } } { package Oof; sub Oof::comp { $::b <=> $::a } } sub pomc { $b <=> $a } dd( [ sort { pomc() } 1..10 ] ); dd( [ sort { Foo::comp() } 1..10 ] ); { my @f = 1..10; my $cb = \&Foo::comp; dd( [ sort $cb @f ] ); $cb = \&pomc; dd( [ sort $cb @f ] ); $cb = \&Oof::comp; dd( [ sort $cb @f ] ); } __END__
$Foo::a is not the same as $main::a aka $::a aka perlvar#$a

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
