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

In my experience, conditionally loading a module (like Corion and tobyink already showed) isn't always the only thing going on, since later on in your code you might want to use functions from that module conditionally, based on whether it was loaded in the first place. Personally, I prefer to set a global variable, something like this:

our $HAVE_XYZ; BEGIN { $HAVE_XYZ = !!$ENV{USE_XYZ} } use if $HAVE_XYZ, 'XYZ'; ... if ( $HAVE_XYZ ) { XYZ::foo(...) }

Also, note that BEGIN is uppercase, not begin {...}.
