I need a hash with hard-coded values in a 'shared' file. Other files would use the hash in the shared file. However, in the example below %hash from the shared file isn't recognized. What do I need to do to make it work?

********************** a.pl *****************************
use strict;
my (%hash);
require "b.pl";
print %hash;
 
********************** shared.pl **************************
sub gethash {
  %hash = ("number" => 123);
}
1;

Woops! Forgot to add this line after the require statement:

gethash();

Problem still holds.

In a little bit more modern fashion:

File B.pm (included among many)

package B;
use Exporter;
@ISA = qw(Exporter);
@EXPORT_OK = qw(%hash);

%hash = (
      hashval1 => 1,
      hashval2 => 2,
      hashval3 => 3,
      hashval4 => 4,
     );

1;
## End of file B.pm

File A.pl
#!/usr/local/bin/perl -w

use B qw(%hash);

print "Got third element as $hash{hashval3}\n";
## End of file a.pl

You might also consider b2pi's suggestion as a more long term solution.
