By the way, you need to hide the 'use module' within an eval, to control whether it happens or not, or else use the module 'if' ( use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGS ).

As Occam said: Entia non sunt multiplicanda praeter necessitatem.

    Using eval would delay the directive to runtime, but it needs to be active at runtime to affect code.

    >perl -e"eval 'use warnings; 1' or die $@; print undef;" >perl -e"use warnings; print undef;" Use of uninitialized value in print at -e line 1.

    And you can't wrap it in a BEGIN because that would introduce a lexical scope.
