if

NAME

if - use a Perl module if a condition holds

SYNOPSIS

  1. use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGUMENTS;

DESCRIPTION

The construct

  1. use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGUMENTS;

has no effect unless CONDITION is true. In this case the effect is the same as of

  1. use MODULE ARGUMENTS;

Above => provides necessary quoting of MODULE . If not used (e.g., no ARGUMENTS to give), you'd better quote MODULE yourselves.

BUGS

The current implementation does not allow specification of the required version of the module.
