NAME

Eval::LineNumbers - Add line numbers to heredoc blocks that contain perl source code

SYNOPSIS

 use Eval::LineNumbers qw(eval_line_numbes);

 eval eval_line_numbers(<<END_HEREIS);
   code
 END_HEREIS

 eval eval_line_numbers($caller_level, $code)

DESCRIPTION

Add a #line "this-file" 392 comment to heredoc/hereis text that is going to be eval'ed so that error messages will point back to the right place.

Please note: when you embed \n in your code, it gets expanded in double-quote hereis documents so it will mess up your line numbering. Use \\n instead when you can.

Caller Level Example

The second form of eval_line_numbers where a caller-level is provided is for the situation where the code is generated in one place and eval'ed in another place. The caller level should be the number of stack levels between where the heredoc was created and where it is eval'ed.

 sub example {
   return <<END_HEREIS
     code
END_HEREIS
 }

 eval eval_line_numbers(1, example())
