Re: Re4: use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;

in reply to Re4: use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;
in thread use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;

No, because it is a source filter. It changes source such as:
use Very::Long::Module::Name as Foo;
to:
BEGIN {*{"Foo::"} = \*{"Very::Long::Module::Name::"}}use Very::Long::M +odule::Name;
essentially aliasing the stashes of the Foo namespace with the Very::Long::Module::Name namespace at compile time.

So this is before anything is required under "use"s hood.

[GotToBTru]: oh I know what it is .. but it is a number only slightly useful to me and of no possible use to our customer
[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
[MidLifeXis]: On the back end, however, that doesn't mean that i have to use that value to indicate "undefined", no matter how much he thinks I should.
