  Description     : 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:
 It doesn't save you much typing, but it'll make alot more sense to
 someone who's not a ninth level Perl acolyte.
 Also provided is a use() method which works in a similar way.


This used to be provided as part of the libuniversal-exports-perl
package but upstream has now decided to split it out. Most people were
installing libuniversal-exports-perl just to get at the functionality
of libuniversal-require-perl.
