techman2006 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:


I have a script which run on Windows as well as on Linux. But it contains a particular functionality which is present only for Linux (which requires specific packages which are installed on Linux only).

So is there a way through which I can make inclusion of packages based on OS.

Below is pseudo code which I am trying to put.

use strict; use warnings; . . . if ($^O eq "Linux") { use DBI; } . . .

Any pointer on the same will be great.
