If you module is a class, you have written a call to a class method. (That is even better than what I had in mind.) If not, the initialize function would have to be written, passed, and called the same way as every other function in the module.

    I just tried it on a simple package and it works :o)
    You're right, as it's not a class i'm doing:

    use Mod; Mod::initialize('argument');

    It is more simple than the previous solutions, and does what i need. Thank you !

    It is less 'elegant' though : there is an additional line of code to put in the client code, each time.
    If someone knows how to use IMPORT i'm still interested in learning.

      Despite the Perl6::Export::Attrs pod, IMPORT should just be a plain old sub.

      sub IMPORT { ... }

      Here's a full example:

      use 5.010; use strict; { package Local::MyTest; no thanks; use Perl6::Export::Attrs; sub foobar :Export(:DEFAULT) { return 1; } sub IMPORT { say "in the IMPORT block! Got: @_"; } } use Local::MyTest qw(1 2 3 :DEFAULT); say "YEAH!" if foobar();
      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
