in thread perl deferring die to calling method

Hi,

I would also do so...

If you were using OO then calling B->foo() would be the best method, but on your example you're not using OO only funcion call, and when calling it with B->foo(), you must know that the first argument in @_ is the package name 'B'.

So go for B::foo() or take a look at the Exporter module.

Also is good to read the manuals about perlref, perlboot.

There was also a module, think it was by Brian D Foy, something to make alias to the package names inside your package scope...
