Do you know where your variables are?

Here is a replacement for your module and script showing one way of achieving this.

use strict; use warnings; package Example; use parent 'Exporter'; our ($VERSION, @EXPORT, $debug); $VERSION = '1.0'; @EXPORT = qw($debug); $debug = 1; 1;
#!/usr/bin/env perl use strict; use warnings; use lib '.'; use Example; print "debug = $debug\n";

I've removed a lot of your boilerplate for clarity. I've also adhered to convention and capitalised the module name. Note that filling @EXPORT is generally frowned upon. Much better to use @EXPORT_OK and allow the script to decide which symbols to import.

BTW does Perl have a system variable "debug" that is global and does not need qualification with the package name?

No, but it does have the warnings pragma and $^W which you might consider similar. I'd stick with your own flags unless you have a good reason to do otherwise, though.

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.
