( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
I like this post very much, but the following is opaque to me for some reason:

"Case 3: The ':DEFAULT' tag *should* export &func1 so you might expect the error here to concern a missing &func2. In fact Perl complains about &func1. Hmm, what is going on here. The DEFAULT tag name is special and is automatically set in our modules %EXPORT_TAGS hash like this DEFAULT => \@EXPORT."

I confess I still don't know what is going on here, and am wondering if someone can help me out.

The words "is automatically set in our modules %EXPORT_TAGS hash like this DEFAULT => \@EXPORT" seem inaccurate to me, since when I look up at the code for, I see the line

%EXPORT_TAGS = ( DEFAULT => qw(&func1),

and not the line


Is the OP saying that the line as is in the code is incorrect, because the "special" nature of DEFAULT overrides it with something else?

Thanks. I feel I am blanking on something obvious here, but just can't see it this rainy morning.

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.
