Ah, you just showed me something cool, that I can do without the 'sub' declaration if I prototype the callback-setter.

But I guess I'm not being very clear as to my primary objective. I would like to have something like the following:

package MyModule; my $callback; sub set_callback { $callback = shift; } sub exec_callback { # the next three lines don't work, but they are indicative of what I + would like # to see happen... i want $name, $street, $city, $zip to be made ava +ilable as package # globals to the anonymous callback sub... in other words, I don't w +ant the callback # to execute in it's own package, I want it to execute in MyModule:: +ThrowAway package MyModule::ThrowAway; our ($name, $street, $city, $zip) = @_; &$callback(); package MyModule } package main; # set callback to check that name and zip are both correctly formatted # notice that callback sub assumes that $name and $zip have been set f +or it, not # passed in @_ # MyModule::set_callback(sub { $name =~ /^[a-zA-Z\s]+$/ and $zip /^\d+$/ + }) MyModule::exec_callback('Bob', '600 1st St.', 'Beverly Hills', 90210);
Now that I think about it, this could never work under use strict, since $name and $zip are undeclared at the time the callback sub is formed.

update: cleared up a few confusing things in my 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:

  • 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).
