I have a bunch of programs that initialize values of variables of a user defined type, so I thought I'd initialize them all in a module and have each program 'use' the module. But, it seems the only way to initialize the variables in a module is to put the initializations in a subroutine within the module and then call the subroutine, say from the MAIN program. Initializing variables of intrinsic type in a module can be done w/o an imbedded subroutine.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is my understanding correct, and if so, why the difference? Thanks for any comments.
