       subs - Perl pragma to predeclare sub names

           use subs qw(frob);
           frob 3..10;

       This will predeclare all the subroutine whose names are in the list, allowing you to use them without parenthe-
       ses even before they're declared.

       Unlike pragmas that affect the $^H hints variable, the "use vars" and "use subs" declarations are not
       BLOCK-scoped.  They are thus effective for the entire file in which they appear.  You may not rescind such dec-
       larations with "no vars" or "no subs".

       See "Pragmatic Modules" in perlmodlib and "strict subs" in strict.
