      I think you're forgetting that my produces a lexical variable that isn't attached to a package namespace.

That being the case, (and I'm agreeing with you) why does this work?

use Inline::Files; use Data::Dumper; open CACHE or die $!; # read access (uses $CACHE to locate file) eval join "", <CACHE>; close CACHE or die $!; print "\$var was ’$var’\n"; while (<>) { chomp; $var = $_; print "\$var now ’$var’\n"; } open CACHE, ">$CACHE" or die $!; # write access print CACHE Data::Dumper->Dump([$var],['var']); close CACHE or die $!; __CACHE__ $var = 'old value';
That's ripped right from the man page for Inline::Filss and it works! Try it!

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.
