What version of perl is that? I saw no difference whether it was in a separate file. Thanks!

    I was using Strawberry Perl 5.26.0 (64-bit), but I get the same result on my various Strawberry Perls going back to 5.10.1 (32-bit).

    It occurred to me to try keeping the str package in the same file as the main code, but moving it to the top of the file:

    package str; ... sub concat { ... } package main; use strict; use warnings; ...

    And the output is the same as was obtained by moving the str package into a separate file. So the issue is (I think) not whether str is in a separate file, but whether it’s “visible” to the Perl compiler when the main code is parsed.

    Hope that helps,

      I see no difference in any perl by moving it to the top of the file, or to a different file. I can't see why it would make a difference, and I do not see that it does make a difference. Odd. Even though you're using Windows, I don't know why the behavior would be different.
