( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I would put a subroutine into @INC that simply logs all the filenames/module names that get loaded, likely into a text file named after $0 (the currently running program). I'd use a text file to avoid any hassle with the database, just for the case when it is unavailable.

If you can set up $ENV{PERL5OPT} for every user, you can install the hook for every user:

package LogLoadedModules; use strict; sub log_loaded_module { my( $self, $file_to_load ) = @_; write_to_log_file( $0, $file_to_load ); return; # we didn't find anything } # Automatically install the hook in @INC when this # module is loaded sub import { unshift @INC, \&log_loaded_module; } 1;

Then you can set up @INC for every user by having

export PERL5OPT=-MLogLoadedModules

Update: Fixed unshift line, as corrected by Perlbotics

to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
