( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Ok. I am obviously not explaining my question correctly. I am writing a MUD in perl. The core functionality runs as a deamon. Logged into the program I need to be able to load and unload modules that are different "rooms" so to speak. Unloading the module is just as important as loading the module because I want people to be able to add sections and test thier code without having to take the whole MUD down. Here is a little pseudo code example:
my $fname = < what the user entered in as thier new room name> my $t = $fname->new(); $t->init_room( $myself ); # do some stuff to the room. free( $t ) # hehehe... ok well something like this anyway.
It needs to be able to do this many, many times without eating up memory every time. Hopefully, this makes more sense.

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.
