Module::Runtime's use_module function may be to your liking...

use_module('My::Utils')->import(qw< min max zip >); my $logger = use_module('My::Logger')->new(-trace => 1);

Update:... some people may well consider this insane but...

BEGIN { package PerlX::qm; no thanks; sub import { my ($me, $name) = @_; require Module::Runtime; require PerlX::QuoteOperator; PerlX::QuoteOperator->new->import($name || "qm", { -parser => 1, -with => sub ($) { Module::Runtime::use_module(grep /\w/, split /\s/, $_[ +0]) }, }, scalar caller); } }; use 5.010; use strict; use warnings; use PerlX::qm; say qm( Math::BigInt 1.000 )->new('4660')->as_hex; say qm( Math::BigFloat )->new('74565')->as_hex;

PerlX::qm defines a quote-like operator (like qq, qw or qx) for module names. Quoted modules are loaded at runtime, and can be followed by an optional version number.

[perldigious]: Being the ignorant one, my initial reaction to that is, "that's sort of a dick move, a lot of people like me expect column names like that to stay the same, why the hell would you change them like that for seemingly no good reason?"
[perldigious]: Or is my irritation/ frustration well founded?
[Corion]: perldigious: That seems to be more the export and likely it's the recipients of that export that like the titles changes
[Corion]: ... "changed"
[Corion]: I usually expect fixed header names, but am sometimes lenient in the order of columns. But changing the report titles often sounds to me as if you are not the sole consument of the export ;)
[shmem]: perldigious: as always - if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Ther must be a very compelling reason for changing column names in a database. Those are rare.
