NAME ^

Mrequire - require on Perl extensions at run time

SYNOPSIS ^

  require Mrequire;
  my $class = ('Foo::Bar', 'Bar::Baz')[int(rand + .5)];
  Mrequire::mrequire($class);
  &Mrequire::new($class, $arg1, $arg2, ...);

  use Mrequire qw(mrequire);
  mrequire(...)

DESCRIPTION ^

Mrequire can be used to dynamically load Perl extensions at run time. This becomes necessary if the decision of what kind of module you want to use (or is available at all) is made at run time.

In addition you can call constructor-like functions (which assume the package name as their first argument, see pertoot(1) for details) of dynamically loaded modules via Mrequire.

METHODS ^

mrequire($class)

Does a require on package $class. If a respective library file cannot be loaded the process dies.

&Mrequire::constructor($class, $arg1, $arg2, ...)

Calls function constructor in package $class. It is assumed that constructor expects the package name as a first argument.

BUGS ^

Yes. Please let me know!

SEE ALSO ^

perl(1), perltoot(1).
