in thread announce missing modules

Just for the record, I found the flaw in this scheme. One of my included modules includes 'Storable', which tries to include 'Log::Agent'. If it fails then the 'Storable' module does something else. The above @INC scheme forces the user to install the conditional module. This shouldn't happen.

So back to the old method (slightly refined to handle module versions and import lists)

{ our @missing = map +(m/^(\S+)/), grep !eval "use $_; 1", grep $_, split /\s*\n\s*/, " Storable File::Basename A::B wq(a b c) Foo::Bar CGI qw/:standard/ " and die "Please install CPAN modules: cpan -i @missing\n"; }
