in reply to What is Exported from modules

To reliably find what was exported from another package you need to do a little symbol table interrogation e.g
sub find_exported_symbols { my($in, $from) = @_; no strict 'refs'; my($in_tbl, $from_tbl) = ( \%{"$in\::"}, \%{"$from\::"} ); return grep { my $sym = $_; grep { \*$sym == \*$_ } keys %$from_tbl; } keys %$in_tbl; } use Symbol qw/ gensym qualify delete_package /; print "found $_ in main from Symbol\n" for find_exported_symbols( 'main', 'Symbol' );
