Regardless of what the documentation says about use being equivalent to require Module; import Module;, this example shows that it is not the case this time.

Not true. The documentation doesn't say that. Both the documentation and I said use Module; is equivalent to

BEGIN { require Module; import Module; }

And that is clearly the case this time.

Besides that, your re-open of ERROR requires knowledge of the package internals

So does knowing STDERR is duped at execution time. Besides, the benefits far outweigh the drawbacks. Well, if it had worked.

  • Works with scalar handles.
  • Much cleaner code in the caller.
  • In fact, one can arrange to have no extra code in the caller since it can be placed in the "grammar".
  • Works even if use Parse::RecDescent; is executed twice.
  • Works with threads.
  • Minor reliance on stable PRD guts.
  • Doesn't work. Oops!

Clearly format has a side-effect that prevents the use of the nice solution this time.

Ah dang! You could issue the format on the new handle, but that's going pretty far into the inards.
