NAME
Module::Quote - a quote-like operator that requires modules for you
SYNOPSIS
use Test::More tests => 1;
use Module::Quote;
my $number = qm( Math::BigInt 1.00 )->new(42);
isa_ok $number, "Math::BigInt";
DESCRIPTION
The "qm()" quote-like operator will load a module and return its name.
So the following should just work, even if you haven't "use"d
Math::BigInt in advance.
qm( Math::BigInt 1.00 )->new(42)
The more usual invocation:
Math::BigInt->new(42)
won't automatically load Math::BigInt, won't check a version number, and
crucially is ambiguous! (See what happens when you define a sub called
"BigInt" in the "Math" package.)
The "qm" operator interpolates variables, so this works too:
my $x = "BigInt 1.00";
qm( Math::$x )->new(42);
You may export "qm" with an alternative name:
use Module::Quote 'qmod';
You may provide a hashref of options for the quote-like operator:
use Module::Quote qm => { emulate => 'q' };
You can export the operator multiple times with different options:
use Module::Quote
qm => { emulate => 'q' },
qqm => { emulate => 'qq' },
;
The "optimistic" and "prefix" options from Module::Hash are supported.
As is "emulate" which can be set to "qq" (the default) or "q" (to
disable interpolation).
