require returns true on success,
yes, and false (undef) otherwise. That was the idea :)
string-eval eats memory
Why would that be (in this case, where the string is just a few bytes)? Any tests/data to prove the claim?
C:\>perl -e"print require CGI;"
C:\>perl -e"print require CGIshamalamadingdong;"
Can't locate CGIshamalamadingdong.pm in @INC
Not sure what this is meant to demonstrate — I thought we
were talking about eval "require ...":
$ perl -E '$ok = eval "require CGI" ? 1:0; say $ok'
$ perl -E '$ok = eval "require CGIshamalamadingdong" ? 1:0; say $ok'
(note: swap single and double quotes if you're on Windows)
