eval string, from a mod_perl guy! I'd be shocked, if I didn't think you had a good reason. :)

I'd still prefer subrefs, can, and maybe even some symbolic references with map:

%commands = map { $_ => \&{ $_ } } keys %commands;

Season to taste.

Update: Not that eval is slow, but that eval string has some memory leaks not fixed until 5.8. That can be nasty in mod_perl.

    In a program that'll fork and run another program, do multiple dns lookups, open and read a handful of files, write to the network, wait for the network and much more? Sure, we can eval half the day1 and it won't make much difference if any at all.

    1) No, of course not literally half the day. :-)

    ask bjoern hansen,   !try; do();
