There's a bit that gets set when you 'import' a variable and this bit tells 'strict' that the variable has been 'declared'. use vars simply 'imports' the variable.

The heuristic that perl uses to detect when a variable is being 'imported' is to detect when the variable slot of a glob gets assigned to by code compiled into another package. Note that the importing has to be done before the code that uses the imported variable is compiled.

> perl -w use strict; BEGIN { *x= \$foo::y; } print $x; Variable "$x" is not imported at - line 3. __END__ Global symbol "$x" requires explicit package name at - line 3. Execution of - aborted due to compilation errors. > perl -w use strict; BEGIN { package foo; *main::x= \$foo::y; } print $x; __END__ Name "foo::y" used only once: possible typo at - line 2. Use of uninitialized value in print at - line 3.

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.
