=head1 NAME

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




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

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

=head1 BUGS

A growing number of pragmas (C<base>, C<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.

=head1 SEE ALSO

L<Module::Reload::Selective> is like this module, but lets you
control which modules will be reloaded.

L<again> provides a slightly different mechanism for reloading
changed modules, where you have to explicitly decide which modules to reload.

L<Apache2::Reload> (or L<Apache::Reload> if you're still using Apache 1).

L<perldoc require|>
for details of how C<require> works.
