in thread use statement seemingly ignored

I seem to have been a bit careless in my use of the word 'defined'. The original error message tells us that the function 'getMeetInfo' was not defined in the namespace NCPS::Results. This means that it was not successfully imported from the module NCPS::Meets. The [almost] same error message from the workaround with the fully qualified name tells us that the function is not even defined in own namespace. There is no function to import. (It is unlikely that the NCPS::Meets module is even loaded.) We should look for the error in the way modules are loaded, before even considering the way functions are imported. The existing maze of nested BEGIN blocks is probably an incorrect attempt to allow modules to use each other.

    oh, I misread. I thought you said it *worked* when using the full name.

    Yeah, if using the full name doesn't work, then when I said doesn't apply.
