appropriate name/place for module which does JIT loading of modulesby sakoht (Initiate)
|on Dec 15, 2007 at 19:54 UTC||Need Help??|
sakoht has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have some code I'm packaging for CPAN release, which includes some logic to do JIT loading of modules by implementing UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD.
Given that there is only one UNIVERSAL::AUTOLOAD, I broke that part out into a module, and added an API so that the feature can be shared, tentatively calling it Class::AutoLoader.
I talked with Stevan Little and Rob Kinyon, who wrote Class::LazyLoad, about merging features. Stevan sent me to Rob, and Rob suggested I post here for suggestions.
Rob (Dragonchild) suggested I indicate he had "vague reservations I can't explain".
Any comments or suggestions on naming, API, other modules which do this I haven't found, etc?
The source is 206 lines, including POD, so I'd be glad to post it or mail it to the curious if the SYNOPSIS above isn't sufficient.
Thanks in advance...
