Perl module to require() from a variable

UNIVERSALrequire - require modules from a variable.

If you’ve ever had to do this…

eval "require $module";

to get around the bareword caveats on require, this module is for you. It creates a universal require class method that will work with every Perl module and its secure. So instead of doing some arcane eval work, you can do this

$module->require;

It doesn’t save you much typing, but it’ll make a lot more sense to someone who’s not a ninth level Perl acolyte.
