How to include 1 script in other script Can't Post

I have two scripts "" and "". I have written some common functionality in so that i can use it in other scripts.
Can someone give some idea on how to include this to other scripts?

I can think of 3 ways to do it :
1) do
2) use ""
3) require ""

I am not sure which one is best. Is there any other way to do it?

The best answer is "none of the above". Without an extremely good reason to do otherwise, your common functions should be put in a module. The module should be included with the command like:

use qw( func1 funct2 );

Refer to the "Perl Modules" section of perldoc perlmod for a template for creating a module.
Good Luck,
