The typical construction of a perl widget is to put most/all your subroutines in one or more modules. These modules are your 'subroutine files'. You can save them anywhere. In your script you "use lib '/my/modules/are/here'" to tell Perl where to look for your modueles and then use whichever of your modules you want. Typically the subroutines in one module all relate to one sort of thing. For example DBI is a module for database accesss, Digest::MD5 gives you MD5 hashing.....

There is plenty of info in the perl docs. See perlman:perlmod perlman:perlmodlib perlman:perlmodinstall perlman:perlnewmod

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.
