Thanks for the good analysis ++.

You're correct about not needing the eval.  I left that in because it was how I discovered the trick of doing a require followed by die in the first place, when working on code that needs Win32::CONSOLE::ANSI, but only on Windows.  When debugging the program by putting die in the middle, I was surprised that it died with the error I had circumvented with the eval.  Looking up die, quickly set me straight that the behavior was correct.

Besides the double entendre on "Dying for a Good Japh", I like the irony that the program complains it can't find JAPH in "Just Another Perl Hacker"!

@ARGV=split//,"/:L"; map{print substr crypt($_,ord pop),2,3}qw"PerlyouC READPIPE provides"

          I think there is an implicit "die" in the error that it can't find the module.

      No there isn't.  If eval is used, taking out die will cause the output to cease appearing.  Try it and see...

      @ARGV=split//,"/:L"; map{print substr crypt($_,ord pop),2,3}qw"PerlyouC READPIPE provides"
        True but I'd already taken out the eval.
