declaration(affects only interpretation of new-style calls to the function,where new-style is defined as not using the C<&> character. Inother words, if you call it like a built-in function, then it behaveslike a built-in function. If you call it like an old-fashionedsubroutine, then it behaves like an old-fashioned subroutine. Itnaturally falls out from this rule that prototypes have no influenceon subroutine references like C<\&foo> or on indirect subroutinecalls like C<&{$subref}> or C<< $subref->()   X-Ref

to(the exact code called depends on inheritance.Because the intent of this feature is primarily to let you definesubroutines that work like built-in functions, here are prototypesfor some other functions that parse almost exactly like thecorresponding built-in.Declared as Called assub mylink ($$)   X-Ref

call(the incorrect C<\&CORE::open> might appear to produce.Library modules should not in general export built-in names like C<open>or C<chdir> as part of their default C<@EXPORT> list, because these maysneak into someone else's namespace and change the semantics unexpectedly.Instead, if the module adds that name to C<@EXPORT_OK>, then it'spossible for a user to import the name explicitly, but not implicitly.That is, they could sayuse Module 'open';and it would import the C<open> override. But if they saiduse Module;they would get the default imports without overrides.The foregoing mechanism for overriding built-in is restricted, quitedeliberately, to the package that requests the import. There is a secondmethod that is sometimes applicable when you wish to override a built-ineverywhere, without regard to namespace boundaries. This is achieved byimporting a sub into the special namespace C<CORE::GLOBAL::>. Here is anexample that quite brazenly replaces the C<glob> operator with somethingthat understands regular expressions.package REGlob;require Exporter;@ISA = 'Exporter';@EXPORT_OK = 'glob';sub import {my $pkg = shift;return unless @_;my $sym = shift;my $where = ($sym =~ s/^GLOBAL_)   X-Ref
