in reply to Simple Module Tutorial

Thanks for the exposition; my inclination regarding a simple module is as follows:

MyModule.pm
package MyModule; use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use Carp; our $VERSION = 1.08; sub see_me { my $foo = shift; print "\t\tDo you see this: $foo?\n"; } 1; __END__ last line of the module needs to be true; last line of the _file_ need not be true: 0;

The above module is exercised by the following script:

exercise_my_module.pl

#!/c/opt/perl/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use diagnostics; use Carp; use MyModule 1.05; #use MyModule 1.10; # will fail MyModule::see_me( 8 ); __END__

    Thank you for this post! It has gotten me past the first barrier of writing my own module. Thanks again! - chanslor
