    Hello Joe,
     

    use is the right thing, but the args depend on the the module:

    For instance, you can do:

    use CGI;
    my $cgi = CGI new;
    print $cgi->header();
    or
    use CGI 'header';
    print header();
    or
    use CGI;
    print CGI::header();
     

    What module is it perhaps we can help a bit more if we had more details :)

    Read the docs of the module or the source to find out which functions it
    exports by default, and which you have to import explicitly.

    So if a module is Bar::Foo and exports 2 functions (fistfunc,
    secondfunc), then you can use them by
    Saying:

    Use Bar::Foo;

    Firstfunc(); # Referring to the first function an so on.
