in thread eval "require $class" seems wrong

Yes, and the space is equally "useless" because require"$file.pm" works just fine. That doesn't mean I'm going to drop either of them.

The "; 1" is part of the best practice. It may not change the effect of this particular code, but it means I don't have to worry about whether the preceeding code might return a false value rather than dieing. It also tells the reader that I'm testing whether eval succeeded not whether the eval'd code returned a true value (which also makes it clearer why I'm using eval at all).
