Sigh. Perhaps I chose terms that were too specific for the attitudes I was trying to convey. You certainly choose to debate the merits of the specifics rather then the nature of the general.

My main point was not to nit pick the differences between use and require, but rather to look at the question of "Is it false lazyness to import subroutines/vars/etc into your namespace?". It's lazy in a good way because you don't have to type endless amounts of semicolons, but then it's lazy in a bad way because you don't know exactly where the subroutine came from. Obviously I favor the latter arguement, that "Foo::Baz()" is preferable to "Baz()" due to it's self documenting nature, it lets you know exactly where the subroutine is coming from and what it corresponds to.

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.
