Do you know where your variables are?

I think you missed the point here. We are already discussing a separate module that can be used by any script. The question is, if that module exports every function within, why not simply make the package name 'main' and not bother exporting?

The answer is: because that forces your decision upon all users of the module. If you at least use a separate package name I can avoid your auto-exportation of everything by doing: use YourMod();. Or maybe I want to use your module from another package (have your module export into a different namespace). If you write your module to simply define everything inside of package 'main', you've removed all my options.

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.
