qw is just a way of saying quote the following words for me.
qw(adam john mary)
Is equivalent to ("adam","john","mary")
So use Net::DBus::Exporter ($foo);
Is a safe and reasonable alternative
If you need to mix variables and trings use:
use Net::DBus::Exporter ($foo,"bar","baz");

Subject: [tpm] Using a variable in a 'qw()'
I want to use a variable when calling a module that uses the 'qw()'
use Net::DBus::Exporter qw(org.tle_bu.Clients);
I would like to be able to say:
use Net::DBus::Exporter qw($foo);
But '$foo' is passed in directly, rather than it's value. Is there an
alternative to 'qw()'? Honestly, I use that syntax all the time but I've
never really understood how it works. Perhaps I should be asking for a
pointer to a doc that explains this syntax better?
Thanks, as always!
