I had a situation where a program was loading a module but I couldn't find where in the code it was loaded. It turned out that I loaded some module, which loaded another module, which loaded the module in question. To be able to track down who loads what, I wrote Devel::TraceINC.
use() the module and it will print a warning every time a module is searched for in
@INC, i.e., loaded.
