Which subroutine or method was called?

QM has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I'm having a funny problem, and suspect that my uses are stepping on each other. How to determine which subroutine is actually getting called?

For instance:

use Time::HiRes qw(sleep); sleep(5);

This imports sleep over the builtin. How do I check that the sleep I call is the sleep I want?

And while we're at it, how to do the same for a method -- that is, I can say: $object->method();, but where does that method live?

    $ perl -MDDS -MTime::HiRes=sleep -e " Dump\&sleep" $CODE1 = \&Time::HiRes::sleep; $ perl -MDDS -MTime::HiRes=sleep -le " print main->can(q/sleep/)" CODE(0x9a38ac) $ perl -MDDS -MTime::HiRes=sleep -e " Dump( main->can(q/sleep/) )" $CODE1 = \&Time::HiRes::sleep;

    Maybe see also module_info/pfunc

      DDS would be?

      Can't locate object method "ARRAY" via package "B::SPECIAL" at C:/stra +wberry/perl/site/lib/Data/Dump/Streamer.pm line 3698.

      This seems to be a (recurring?) bug. I see it also in Ubuntu 10.4, Perl 5.10.1, as well as the above Strawberry Perl 5.16.1.

    To remove all doubt, don't export any functions, then explicitly call the one from the Time::HiRes module:
    use Time::HiRes (); # prevents exporting any functions, although POD s +ays none are exported anyway Time::HiRes::sleep(5);

    OR, you could use CORE to call bulitin like so:

    use strict; use warnings; use Time::HiRes qw(); # just like others said Time::HiRes::sleep(2); # module sleep function CORE::sleep(2); # bulitin sleep function
    Then to see what went down call your script like so perl -MO=Deparse perlscript.plthen you see this:
    use Time::HiRes (); use warnings; use strict 'refs'; &Time::HiRes::sleep(2); sleep 2;

    If you tell me, I'll forget.
    If you show me, I'll remember.
    if you involve me, I'll understand.
