the more subs I import the harder it becomes to keep track of where they are all from

You could import the sub to a different name:

*vlp_func = \&Very::Long::Package::func;

Update: The following is a means of doing the above with a large number of functions:

use warnings; use strict; sub import_func { my ($src_name, $dst_name) = @_; if (not defined $dst_name) { $dst_name = (split(/::/, $src_name))[-1]; } if (index($dst_name, '::') < 0) { $dst_name = caller() . '::' . $dst_name; } my $src_func_ref = do { no strict 'refs'; \&$src_name }; my $dst_glob_ref = do { no strict 'refs'; \*$dst_name }; *$dst_glob_ref = $src_func_ref; } sub Foo::Bar::func { print("Hello World!\n"); } import_func('Foo::Bar::func', 'fb_func'); fb_func(); # Calls Foo::Bar::func

To import multiple functions at once, you can use

import_func("Foo::Bar::$_", "fb_$_") foreach qw( func moo bla );

  • 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.
