subs(3p)         Perl Programmers Reference Guide        subs(3p)


NAME
       subs - Perl pragma to predeclare sub names

SYNOPSIS
           use subs qw(frob);
           frob 3..10;

DESCRIPTION
       This will predeclare all the subroutine whose names are in
       the list, allowing you to use them without parentheses
       even before they're declared.

       Unlike pragmas that affect the $^H hints variable, the
       "use vars" and "use subs" declarations are not
       BLOCK-scoped.  They are thus effective for the entire file
       in which they appear.  You may not rescind such declara-
       tions with "no vars" or "no subs".

       See "Pragmatic Modules" in perlmodlib and "strict subs" in
       strict.
