Perl (and really all code languages) are made up of various 'sets' of functions. You can bring in one of these sets with the 'use Text::ParseWords;' line, which enables you to use one of the functions in that set: 'quotewords'. I.e. if you remove that 'use' line from your file, the quotewords line will give you an error.

Code modularization and reuse are definitely important aspects of coding. I would say you should start to look into these topics in earnest once you have gotten comfortable writing a few 'basic hello world' examples from scratch on your own. In short: most advanced functionality you are looking for will be package in some module somewhere nowadays :). Hope that helps!

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

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • 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).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
