UNIVERSAL-exports (0.05) **

Written well, and works properly.

But it also causes action at a distance, and it's functionality is not contained.

Unfortunately, as with every UNIVERSAL::something module, it is dangerously octamarine (see Terry Pratchet) and should be used with caution, as when used in combination with other modules that do similar symbol table tricks, there is a random non-trivial chance of it exploding violently without warning.

UNIVERSAL-exports (0.03) *****

So good, it should be a standard pragma....

UNIVERSAL::require / UNIVERSAL-exports (0.03) *****

A simple module which neatly overcomes a glitch in Perl by providing a simple interface for loading modules chosen dynamically at run time.
