( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Greetings. I am trying to figure out how to override 'use'.

BEGIN{ use subs qw(use); sub use{ print "Using fake use\n"; } } use Data::Dumper;
However, this didn't seem to work. I tried enclosing the enclosing the 'subs' pragma and the fake 'use' definition in a BEGIN block because the 'use' occurs at compile time. Alas, this didn't seem to work.

Thus I have come to you seeking enlightenment. I am going about this wrong? Is it even possible to override the 'use' special form? Is their documentation anywhere specifying what CORE subroutines are and are not overridable?

In reply to Overriding 'use'? by Anonymous Monk

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
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.
