import LIST

There is no builtin import function. It is just an ordinary method (subroutine) defined (or inherited) by modules that wish to export names to another module. The use function calls the import method for the package used. See also , "Perl modules (packages and symbol tables)" (perlmod) in the Perl Library Reference Manual (Volume 2), and "Implements default import method for modules" (Exporter) in the Perl Library Reference Manual (Volume 2).
