Merlyn, I don't hate you :-)

Actually, I have seen 'autouse' before and had just forgot about it. And it's even in the standard distro. The biggest difference between the 'autouse' module and my code is that my module doesn't require any pre-declaration of what modules you want to use; you just call them and they get loaded. It's a step beyond run-time loading. Not that I'm promoting this as how this should be done; this was just an educational exercise.

In developing this module, I had the chance to look at AUTOLOAD and the 'goto' function and gain a better understanding of what they were capable of. As I said in the notes with my code, this was not something I would put into production code. But it was a demonstration of one way to approach this problem.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
