( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
sorry monks, I feel like this is info I should be able to find somewhere but I cant.

I have lots of subroutines, many of which use various modules or other subroutines I've made.

I use require '' to include my subroutines and of course 'use' to include modules. What I would like to do is put 'use' and 'require' statements into my subroutines, since sometimes they will be called from scripts that already use and require the necessary subs and modules and sometimes not.

I've read that 'require' will handle double declarations just fine, but I've also read that I should use 'do' instead.

I can't find anything that says one way or the other how 'use' will handle this.

Please advise. Thanks.

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.
