in reply to Help Changing use into require/import

Hello computergeek and welcome to the monastery and to the wonderful world of Perl!

You can also be interested into Module::Load::Conditional

PS also note that the folowing works:

perl -e " my $rc; BEGIN{ + $rc = eval{require Capture::Tiny; Capture::Tiny->import ('capture'); 1; } } if ($rc){ ($SpoolFile->[0],$CMDERR[0],$ReturnCode)=capture{sy +stem qq[ echo Hello, World | cat ]}; print join ', ', $ReturnCode, $SpoolFile->[0]; } " 0, Hello, World

Infact use is equivalent to BEGIN { require Module; Module->import( LIST ); } as per use docs.

PPS see also some other links about compile time / run time
