in reply to USE or Require?

On the flip side, the only routine I export is new, and that goes in EXPORT_OK. I tend to shy away from writing libs, in a non OOP style. I hate namespace corruption, and I simply don't want to afflict it on the next person in line. With that said I try to do use module (); when I remember. I almost never directly access stuff outside of main's namespace, the only exception I can think of is File::Find, which irks me to no end everytime I use it, but *shrug*

use perl;
