maybe it's relevant here to remark that use on WIN will show a split personality.

the require will be case insensitive but the import will fail, because the latter expects a case sensitive package name

this will lead to somehow schizophrenic error conditions.

C:\tmp\pm>perl -MData::Dumper -we"print Dumper [1..3]" # Correct C +asing, NO Problems $VAR1 = [ 1, 2, 3 ]; C:\tmp\pm>perl -MdAtA::DuMpER -we1 # NO Error +Msg on Win C:\tmp\pm>perl -MdAtA::DuMpER -we"print Dumper [1..3]" # BUT won't + work! Name "main::Dumper" used only once: possible typo at -e line 1. print() on unopened filehandle Dumper at -e line 1. C:\tmp\pm>perl -MdAtA::DuMpER::FAKE -we1 # What we r +eally expected ... Can't locate dAtA/DuMpER/ in @INC (you may need to install the +dAtA::DuMpER::FAKE module) ... C:\tmp\pm>
