in reply to Cancel/no-op a require

Also, if you really want to use a hook in @INC, this is how they work...

unshift @INC, sub { my $module = $_[1]; if ($module eq '') { $INC{$module}++; my $line = 0; return sub { unless ($line++) { $_ = "1;\n"; return 1; } return 0; } } return; }; require Foo; # no-op
perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    Ah, so this particular sentence in perlfunc is the one that gets me confused: The subroutine should return either nothing or else a list of up to three values in the following order.

    So instead of returning (undef, sub{...}) I should've just returned (sub {...}).

    Thanks, Toby.

      Also the innards of the function are kinda odd. You need to assign lines to $_ rather than returning them. I can understand why they did it that way, but it's pretty strange.

      perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'
