This question has probably come up a zillion times, but a search of this
group and Google has been somewhat ambiguous.
Is there a source "include" available for Perl, or a macro statement like
in assembler? I assume that there is not, at least by that topic, since I
can find nothing on the subject in my books.
I would assume that some Perl projects are fairly large and scrolling up
and down dozens or hundreds of screens trying to find that subroutine
would get old fairly fast.
It is easy enough to build a source joiner using several methods, but
being very new to Perl I was just wondering what the pros use to break up
their projects into managable pieces?

Thanks man! That worked. It is obvious that require is not exactly an
include and has some stuff that I don't understand yet, but it is close
enough. Thanks again.
