in reply to Re: Pragma-like package
in thread Pragma-like package

import() has been mentioned, but if what you want to do is to selectively pull in only some methods and variables from the package into your namespace, you might want to look at the Exporter module, which provides an import for you which does just that.
You might also want to take a look at Sub::Exporter instead. It's a newer, better way of manipulating the symbols exported by a module.
