in thread use of "use X"

Have tried a few modifications, but none eliminated the 'redefine' warnings when ($debug > 2).

That's because it has a lexical scope, and the scope in your code is the containing block. This ugly alternative works:

BEGIN { warnings->unimport( 'redefine' ) if $debug > 2 }

    It's not ugly - it's Perl. Thank you. Again, great explanations folks - your advice is very much appreciated.
