I think I see a bug in the perlmod documentation.  It tripped me up anyway.

The perlmod documentation offers a template for a new module.  It contains
the line "our @EXPORT_OK;" but by my understanding of 'our' and by trial
with perl 5.6, this statement isn't about to declare the variables contained
in @EXPORT_OK, but instead just (re)declares @EXPORT_OK.


This is trouble for beginners.
Thanks,
  George







Since you like to get `perl -V`, here you go:
