NAME ^

Module::Reload - Reload %INC files when updated on disk

SYNOPSIS ^

  Module::Reload->check;

DESCRIPTION ^

When Perl pulls a file via require, it stores the filename in the global hash %INC. The next time Perl tries to require the same file, it sees the file in %INC and does not reload from disk. This module's handler iterates over %INC and reloads the file if it has changed on disk.

Set $Module::Reload::Debug to enable debugging output.

BUGS ^

A growing number of pragmas (base, fields, etc.) assume that they are loaded once only. When you reload the same file again, they tend to become confused and break. If you feel motivated to submit patches for these problems, I would encourage that.
