( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
1. How to store routines in separate files:
#file shared1.pm: use strict; sub xxx1 ($\%\@@) # define xxx1 with prototype { blah blah; return ...; } # end sub xxx1 use Exporter(); @ISA=qw(Exporter); @EXPORT = qw(xxx1); # exports name xxx1
-----------------
Now, in your main.pl program file, you may call subroutine defined in shared1.pm above:
use strict; use shared1; # 'include' shared code ... # call sub defined in shared1.pm my $result = xxx1($arg1, %arg2, @arg3, $optarg1, $optarg2); ...
---------------------
2. In project this huge, I advise to use not only 'use strict' everywhere, you may want to learn how to do 'prototypes' as well. It will help you to detect (some) errors when wrong numbers or types of parameters are passed to subroutine. While on that, you can also learn to pass hashes as references. Good luck on your long jourmey! PMAS

Title:
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.
