in thread can't import using exporter

Something like this:

package mem; sub import { my (undef, $package) = @_; $package =~ s!::!/!g; $INC{$package . '.pm'} = 1; }

As long as that appears logically before any use mem 'foo'; statements in your program, everything should work correctly. It's slightly more typing than your implementation of mem, but it keeps all of the details of the implementation in one place.

[ozboomer]: Howdy, all.. Trying this once more... Not really a perl question :(... but I don't know how to even title my query (more...)
[ozboomer]: There's a text file with lots of sections in it, like an '.ini/.conf' file. Each section can be 'used' or 'unused' by its application (more...)
[ozboomer]: Some folk want to use the text file as 'storage', keeping ALL items in it (a database); others call it an 'active document' that should only contain 'in-use' sections. Is there a 'good practice' for this sort of thing?
