Unfortunately, your example doesn't work:

eval "use Cava::Pack" or do { die "Using faked out Cava::Pack\n"; }

I see the "Using faked out Cava::Pack" message on both Linux and Win32 (where Cava::Pack is indeed available).

    That is the reason for a true value, 1
    eval "use Cava::Pack; 1" or die "Oh noes! $@"; eval "use HOW::Cava::Pack; 1" or die "HOW!?! $@"; __END__ HOW!?! Can't locate HOW/Cava/ in @INC (@INC contains: C:/perl/5 +.10.1/lib/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread C:/perl/5.10.1/lib C:/perl/site/5. +10.1/lib/MSWin32-x86-multi-thread C:/perl/site/5.10.1/lib .) at (eval + 2) line 1. BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at (eval 2) line 1.
    Hmm, I don't recall installing Cava::Pack :)

    The code being executed by eval ("") returns nothing (()), which is indistinguishable from the value eval returns on failure.

    You need

    eval "use Cava::Pack; 1"

[perldigious]: A question since I'm ignorant of what's normal for database management... Do admins change column names a lot in databases?
[perldigious]: On occasion my scripts break, because they will do something that seems laregly pointless to me... like in this case, changing a column name from "ABC Category" to "ABC Category Override".
[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
