NAME ^

Module::Loaded - mark modules as loaded or unloaded

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Module::Loaded;

    $bool = mark_as_loaded('Foo');   # Foo.pm is now marked as loaded
    $loc  = is_loaded('Foo');        # location of Foo.pm set to the
                                     # loaders location
    eval "require 'Foo'";            # is now a no-op

    $bool = mark_as_unloaded('Foo'); # Foo.pm no longer marked as loaded
    eval "require 'Foo'";            # Will try to find Foo.pm in @INC

DESCRIPTION ^

When testing applications, often you find yourself needing to provide functionality in your test environment that would usually be provided by external modules. Rather than munging the %INC by hand to mark these external modules as loaded, so they are not attempted to be loaded by perl, this module offers you a very simple way to mark modules as loaded and/or unloaded.

FUNCTIONS ^

$bool = mark_as_loaded( PACKAGE );

Marks the package as loaded to perl. PACKAGE can be a bareword or string.

If the module is already loaded, mark_as_loaded will carp about this and tell you from where the PACKAGE has been loaded already.

$bool = mark_as_unloaded( PACKAGE );

Marks the package as unloaded to perl, which is the exact opposite of mark_as_loaded. PACKAGE can be a bareword or string.

If the module is already unloaded, mark_as_unloaded will carp about this and tell you the PACKAGE has been unloaded already.

$loc = is_loaded( PACKAGE );

is_loaded tells you if PACKAGE has been marked as loaded yet. PACKAGE can be a bareword or string.

It returns falls if PACKAGE has not been loaded yet and the location from where it is said to be loaded on success.
