Module::Reload->check() basically does:

  • delete $INC{module_name};
  • require 'module_name' ;

but only if the modified_time of the package has changed on disk, which is very nice, Module::Reload works properly.

However, what if you delete a sub from a module while running the program, the function will remain loaded. That needs to be fixed in Module::Pluggable.

I took a look at Apache::StatINC and it does the same as Module::Reload except it does delete the subs that are gone using this:

  • $class->Apache::Symbol::undef_functions( undef, 1 );

However, I guess Apache::StatINC can be use only if you're writing a web app deployed using Apache. What if you want to write a non-web app(an IRC bot for example) ?

Plack::Loader::Shotgun I wasn't able to check out because I'm not familiar with Plack

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

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.
