NAME

modules - loads several modules with single use-command

SYNOPSIS

  use modules qw(strict warnings 5.006 Data::Dumper);

                # and now we can use i.e. Data::Dumper

        print Dumper { one => 1, two => 2 };

DESCRIPTION

If you are bored by multiple 'use'-statement and asked why you cannot load several modules with one single 'use'-command: You will love 'modules', because thats what it does.

Ironically 'modules' is a module. The name was choosen, because the 'use modules' construct sounds self-explanatory.

OPTIONS Following keywords can an be interspersed into the import list. They must be prepended with an '-' (for turning the option OFF) or '+' (ON). The option may be turned multiple times ON/OFF.

force

This options controls whether modules which failed during loading become automatically loaded from CPAN (if available).

Default: ON.

Example:

        use modules qw(strict warnings -force IO::Extended +force Class::Maker);

        (Meaning: If 'IO::Extended' is not loadable, do not try to install it via CPAN).

BTW the example is semantically identical to:

        use modules qw(strict warnings Class::Maker -force IO::Extended);

EXAMPLE 1

use modules qw(5.006 strict warnings Data::Dumper);

becomes the short form for:

use 5.006; use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dumper;

EXAMPLE 2

use modules ( qw(strict), { IO::Extended => '(:all)' } );

becomes the short form for:

use strict; use IO::Extended qw(:all);

EXPORT

None by default.
