Two other issues come into this. What is imported? What namespaces do we subclass?

An old style '' library by default exports everything it defines, so two requires may act as you fear, except that the last executed require provides the visible &todo. Perl modules are expected to establish their own namespace and not walk on each other's definitions.

In your example, may call itself package something; internally, so its &todo is addressed as &something::todo while the other is addressed as 'different::todo(@things). Calling require happens at runtime, so you may need to import the routines you want.

If you place the module namespace on your own namespace's @ISA at some time, you inherit whichever &todo appears first in a depth-first search of @ISA.

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
