in reply to Undefined subroutine errors

Another solution - maybe not a good one - is this

#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use warnings; use Spiderman qw(shootWeb); print STDERR shootWeb() . "\n"; package Spiderman; use base qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT = qw(shootWeb webStrength); use DrOctopus (); sub shootWeb { return DrOctopus::deflectWeb(); # from DrOctopus } sub webStrength { return 1; } package DrOctopus; use base qw(Exporter); our @EXPORT = qw(deflectWeb); use Spiderman (); sub deflectWeb { return Spiderman::webStrength(); # from Spiderman } 1;

    None of the functions provided by Exporter are called in your snippet. Why bother using Exporter?

    Update: In answer to my question, I suppose it gives the Green Goblin and other third parties the ability to import from these modules, but it detracts from the point of using fully qualified function names.

      In this case no, but that doesnt stop someone else using Spiderman or DrOctopus with the full export.

      As I said, it fixes his problem, YAWTDI, but not a great way.

        All you need to do is put BEGIN { ... } around our @EXPORT = ... (and remove the () from the use statements) and it works without fully qualified function names.
