Since Perl 5.12, package has started to become more interesting. You can do stuffs like:

use v5.16; use strict; use warnings; package Foo::Bar 1.2 { ...; }

Although the extended syntax for package doesn't need feature or a use VERSION line to enable it, it seems like a good idea to put the use VERSION before it rather than after, so people with older Perls get an error message about their Perl being too old, instead of an error message about being unable to parse the package statement.

And even in cases where I'm supporting older Perls, I keep all that stuff before package.

Sometimes I'll also use modules before package if I know I'm not importing anything into my namespace from them, like:

use v5.16; use strict; use warnings; use Scalar::Util (); package Foo::Bar 1.2 { ...; my $addr = Scalar::Util::refaddr($ref); # use fully-qualified nam +e because not imported }

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.
