( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have around 40 modules to load in a script, instead of hardcoding I want to load them dynamically (read the directory and use the modules)
I'm able to get the module names but the script throws an error when i do "use $fmodule"

Please point me to the right direction. Below is the sample script
#!/usr/bin/perl use strict; use warnings; use File::Basename; BEGIN { my $path = '/path/ABC/*.pm'; my @files = < $path >; foreach my $mod(@files){ my($filename, $directories, $suffix) = fileparse($mod); $filename=~s/\.pm//gx; use $filename; } }
I get the following error when the script is executed
syntax error at line 13, near "use $filename" BEGIN not safe after errors--compilation aborted at
Please let me know the correct way of loading the modules.

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.
