Thanks for pointing out about the general term. Although the majority of the general form is for require/use, people do use it for other purposes too:

    I wish the grep.cpan.me supported lookaheads and lookbehinds, which would allow me to search a little more specifically for situations where the idiom is used outside of the "require" and "use" use case. If it did, I might try something like:

    if \(eval ["'](?!require|use).+?;\s*1;?["']
