, thanks for the example. However, if I'm permitted, I have a follow-up question: does coding it the way you do, by "requiring" the module only if the condition is met, only load the module when it runs?
Normally I reference the module like this:
at the start of my program, right after the shebang. Thanks.
Well, I Googled and found this informative piece
on modules, libraries, etc. I see now that Perl doesn't deal with a require
until it comes across it in the code.
