in thread constant and eval (are they enemies?)

Thanks. I cannot use the import() thing, because I parse the constant name and the value from a file. That's why I have to use 'eval'...

    Why can't you do
    require constant; constant::->import($name => $value);

      That's happening at runtime, not compile time. While you could put a BEGIN block around it, the code I posted elsewhere in this thread copies the method of the module, without even having to invoke the overhead of the module.
