Quite some years have gone by since the inital post, just want to point out that "use vars" is now considered deprecated, instead, "our" is prefered. Another already mentioned point is not to use @EXPORT too much. So my basic module is like the following (I have a emacs function to output this):
package MyModule; use strict; use Exporter qw(import); our $VERSION = 1.00; our @ISA = qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT_OK = qw(func1 func2); our %EXPORT_TAGS = ( DEFAULT => [qw(func1)], Both => [qw(func1 func2)]); sub func1 { return reverse @_ } sub func2 { return map{ uc }@_ } 1;
For those emacs users, here's the simple script to generate the skeleton:
(defun perl-new-module () "Generate a skeleton source for a traditional perl module." (interactive) (setq var (split-string (read-from-minibuffer "Enter module name (eg. Web::Test): "nil nil nil nil nil nil) " ")) (setq name (car var)) (insert (format "package %s;\n\n" name)) (insert "use strict;\n\n") (insert "use Exporter qw(import);\n") (insert "our @ISA = qw(Exporter);\n") (insert "our @EXPORT_OK = qw();\n") (insert "our %EXPORT_TAGS = ();\n") (insert "our $VERSION = 1.00; \n\n") (insert "\n\n\n\n\n\n") (insert "1;") (insert "\n") (previous-line 6) (end-of-line) )

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.
