( [id://3333] : superdoc . print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Hello monks,
I have this package:
package MYPACKAGE; use Exporter; use vars qw / $VERSION @ISA @EXPORT @EXPORT_OK %EXPORT_TAGS /; $VERSION = 1.0; @ISA = qw/ Exporter /; @EXPORT = (); @EXPORT_OK = qw / sub1 /; %EXPORT_TAGS = ( DEFAULT => [ qw / sub1 / ] ); use strict; my $var1 = "DEFUALT I WANT TO CHANGE"; sub sub1 { print "var1 = $var1\n"; } 1;
Now I use this packe in this script like so:
#!/usr/bin/perl -w use strict; use lib ('.'); use MYPACKAGE qw / sub1 /; use vars qw / $var1 /; $var1="PRINT THIS"; sub1();
The output is:
I was hoping that the output would be
How come the value of $var1 didn't change when I did $var1="PRINT THIS";
in my script?

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.
