Well, I just checked in the Camel books. The 3rd edition does indicate "require Exporter;" in modules, but the 2nd edition (which I learned from) has "use Exporter;" in modules in most of the examples (although there was a "require Exporter;" in an example.) Randal Schwartz's book "Learning Perl Objects, References & Modules" says "...As a module author, all you do is add:
use Exporter; our @ISA = qw(Exporter);
I just made a module skeleton using h2xs, and "require Exporter;" appears in the module file. So maybe either will suffice..I'll go with the "require" form since that's what h2xs produced.
(Update: Hadn't seen Dragonchild's reply yet - that seems to settle the difference. Fixed typo.)

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.
