I'm trying to find the perl built-in variable for the current subroutine name (the analog to __FUNCTION__ in gcc), so that I can pass the name to a calling function, as in
the code below. I've looked through the Coriolis and O'Reilly texts, and at several on-line FAQs. Anyone know what it's called?
my ($callerName) = @_;
printf("foo called from $callerName\n");
my $currentFxnName = ???;
