NAME

once - Execute code only once throughout the program's lifetime

VERSION

version 1.101420

SYNOPSIS

    use once;

    sub setup {
        my $self = shift;
        ONCE {
            print "run only once however often setup() is called"
        };
        # other_things();
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module provides a way to run code only once, no matter how often the surrounding code is called.

METHODS

ONCE

This subroutine is exported automatically. It takes a code block and executes it only the first time that this specific call of ONCE is encountered. This might be useful, for example, in a situation where you initialize an object but only want to do it the first time any object of that class is initialized, perhaps to install methods or setup some other data.

INSTALLATION
