This is a question prompted by What modules are we actually using?. I was wondering if there is some core Perl module which has to be loaded, when it loads another module thru use or require? My idea would be to temporarily modify that module, to print to a log file.
What does that "it" refer to? Perl? If so, then I don't think so. Otherwise, unless I'm severely mistaken, I don't think so either.

However if all you want is to {know,log} which modules get loaded, then you can easily spot the possibility to put code into @INC to do so. E.g.:

#!/usr/bin/perl -l use strict; use warnings; END { my @stuff; sub record { push @stuff, $_[1]; undef; } print for @stuff; } use lib \&record; use File::Find; no lib \&record; # Do something else, I suppose! __END__
For the record this had come up in clpmisc and this kind of solution was suggested by Anno Siegel, who is a precious contributor there. As time permits I'll try to locate the original post.

  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
