use - Import several modules with a single use statement


# Use several modules in command line:
% perl -Muse=CGI,DBI,PPI -e '...'

# Import several modules at once
use use qw[ strict warnings methods invoker ];

# Pass options as array refs
use use 'strict', 'warnings', 'HTTP::Status' => [':constants'];

# Pass required versions after module names
use use '5.12.0', 'HTTP::Status' => '6.00' => [':constants'];

# ...or in your own module, importing on behalf of its caller:
package MY::Macro;
sub import {
    use use;
    local @_ = qw[ Module1 Module2 ];
    goto &use::use;


This module lets you import several modules at once.

This is almost the same as modules, except that caller is properly set up so syntax-altering modules based on Devel::Declare, Filter::Simple or Module::Compile work correctly.

If a Perl version number larger than 5.9.3 appears as the first argument, then it's automatically expanded just like a regular use VERSION statement. For example, use use '5.12.0' expands to use strict; use feature ':5.12'.
