Answering your question whether it is right or wrong to import ':all' methods into client code, I think it depends. I like importing all methods for simple modules and in cases where I am absolutely sure no conflicts would arise. Examples of a few such modules are Date::Manip and Data::Dumper.

One way to avoid having to deal with the namespace pollution issue in your code, you might try to make use of an OO interface to your modules. Unfortunately not all have one implemented for them, in which case you might resort to selectively importing only the most often used methods, leaving the rest outside of your namespace ;)

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