in thread [solved] Test question: how to exercise conditional module load?

Thanks! It didn't work quite perfectly as provided, but it was enough info to get me a working solution:

{ local %INC; delete $INC{YAML.pm}; # make sure YAML isn't loaded $INC{'YAML/Syck.pm'} = 1; # fake loading of YAML::Syck sub YAML::Syck::import { die } require My::Module; ok( $INC{'YAML.pm'}, 'YAML loaded when YAML::Syck not present' ); }

Thanks again!
