Package exporter not working ?

Package exporter not working ?


Any idea why this export isn't working in this code?


package Utils;

# Invoke Exporter
use Exporter;

# Set Variables
our @ISA = qw(Exporter);

our %EXPORT_TAGS = ( 
    'SMTP' => [ qw(SMTP_DOMAIN) ],
    'RAG' => [ qw(RAG_RATING RAG_COLORS) ], 
    'INPUT' => [ qw(cleanInput buildUPD buildADD) ],   

our @EXPORT = qw( ISDate UKDate setSPArgs );

our @EXPORT_OK = ( @{ $EXPORT_TAGS{'SMTP'} }, @{ $EXPORT_TAGS{'RAG'} }, @{ $EXPORT_TAGS{'INPUT'} } );

sub import {
    push(@_, qw/ ISDate UKDate setSPArgs /); 
    goto &Exporter::import;

The default packages I want exporting work (ISDate UKDate setSPArgs ) but if I try to use the module with only a specific export...


use Utils qw(INPUT); 

it errors saying 'INPUT is not exported'.

The override I've tried to put in to ensure some subs are always exported seems to have broken the ability to select what gets exported?

You help is appreciated
