( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

@ISA does the same thing here that it does in an OO module. It defines other modules that Perl should search for subroutines that you don't define in your module.

For example, in this case use Module is (almost) the same as:

require Module; Module::import;

So Perl tries to call the import function in your module. Your module doesn't have an import function so Perl searches the modules in @ISA and calls the first instance of import that it finds. This is in Exporter. Exporter::import does all sorts of clever things and exports the contents of your @EXPORT_OK array into the calling package.

Update: Ridiculous typo corrected. Thanks to ryddler.

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.
