( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

My first reaction is that this is a bad idea, it means that your modules are relying on certain functions to exist in the 'main' namespace. It would seem to me to be clearer to simply have a use Foo::Utility qw/:common/; at the top of each of these modules, that means your modules are only relying on things they have control over. That also has the benefit of meaning you can now say

my $id = get_id();

That alone will probably save you typing, which seems to be what you were worried about in the first place. If you were worried about actually loading the module multiple times, don't, perl only loads it once.

Exporter will give you everything you need to do in Foo::Utility with very little effort (if you weren't already aware of it).

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 or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
