in reply to Inheritance based on input

use won't work here. Look at require (and import). By using something like the following, you can import modules and call functions in them on demand:

... if ($device =~ /^(Device1|Device2)$/){ require "$device.pm"; $device->import(); # import the device subroutines here } ... # This assumes all devices have and export the same subroutine names device_function_1(); device_function_2();

Update: Fixed typo in regex, thanks to Perlbotics
