in thread Difference between 'use' and 'require'

Ah yes, forgot that one :)

A use anywhere in the code will be evaluated when the code is run compiled, but require - import's can only get evaluated when encoutered - good for when you want one module or another but both have quite a large initialisation overhead which means you only want the one you need.

update D'oh, sorry, meant compile not run.
