"I cannot install this as a module on the system, I only have limited access to where I can put my files."

I would like to bring your attention to non-priviledged installations in case you didn't already know that you can install modules on your system. :)

(updated ... added paragraph)
Now then. As for exporting ... why do people think that exporting is easier to implement then OO? If you stick with OO methods (that is, you instantiate a class and use it's methods) then you never have to worry about cluttering namespace or getting the Export code correct. Besides, these days you can cheat big time with modules like Class::MethodMaker that "write the code for you." Observe:

my $dude = new Person; $dude->name('Spicoli'); $dude->age(20); print $dude->as_string, "\n"; package Person; use Class::MethodMaker new => 'new', get_set => [qw(name age)], ; sub as_string { my $self = shift; return $self->name . ' (' . $self->age . ')'; }
Much nicer. :)

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.
