    I know that.

    But I want one expression to determine the condition, I want to avoid (for reasons of pure idiocy) to have an extra assignment...

    So something like

    print defined *main::{$symbol}->*{CODE} ? "yep": "nope";
    But I cannot do it...

      It's $glob && *$glob{CODE}, not defined *main::{$symbol}->*{CODE}.

        First of all thanks a lot for solving my problem.

        But I was wondering if there is an expression that would avoid having a two-step solution (i.e. without first assigning a temporary $glob variable).

        So is there an expression that when I have a symbol ("hubba" say) I could do a

        (or something like that) to determine whether or not there is a sub-routine of that name in the main-package.

        But this is for bonus-points only...
