in reply to usage of EXPORT function

How the EXPORT is useful in OO programming of perl
Please note as a general rule, if the module is trying to be object oriented (OO) as stated in the OP, then export nothing.
Check the example below:

package Student; use warnings; use strict; sub new { my $type = shift; my $class = ref($type) || $type; my $self = { name => shift // "No name", score => shift // 0, }; return bless( $self, $class ); } sub name { my $self = shift; $self->{'name'} = shift // $self->{'name'}; return $self->{'name'}; } sub score { my $self = shift; $self->{'score'} = shift // $self->{'score'}; return $self->{'score'}; } 1;
Then that is called in the .pl script like so:, without the Exporting any subroutine
#!/usr/bin/perl -l use warnings; use strict; use Student; # the module used my $std = Student->new(); print join " - " => ( $std->name(), $std->score() ); # prints No name +- 0 my $std2 = Student->new( "melchi", 78 ); print join " - " => ( $std2->name(), $std2->score() ); # prints melchi + - 78 print join " - " => ( $std->name("kunle"), $std2->score(90) ); # print +s kunle - 90
You might what to check, perlobj, perlmod, perlmodlib
Hope this helps.

If you tell me, I'll forget.
If you show me, I'll remember.
if you involve me, I'll understand.

    Should cpanminus be part of the standard Perl release?
