Better using local in such case (I think..)

{ local $@; eval "use Capture::Tiny qw(capture)"; if ( !$@ ) { $HAVE_Capture_Tiny = 1; } }

See also eval, DESTROY, die and $@ - educational couple of hours

    Yes, localizing $@ will get rid of at least one problem for certain, where $@ is quashed if it already has something from a previous eval.
