Subject: CORE::GLOBAL::require bypass is incomplete
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 752b
Module::Runtime tries to bypass any CORE::GLOBAL::require overrides by calling require using CORE::require. This is ineffective on perl 5.8.0-5.8.8. This causes problems with Devel::OverrideGlobalRequire, as it does not maintain the file and line context in the require calls it uses. This means that use_package_optimistically throws errors when it should not. D::OGR itself includes a workaround for this issue: https://metacpan.org/source/DAGOLDEN/Devel-OverrideGlobalRequire-0.001/lib/Devel/OverrideGlobalRequire.pm#L43-53 My preference would be to stop trying to bypass C::G::require, and relax the regex checking for a load error. But otherwise, deleting and restoring C::G::require while compiling the module should be a viable workaround.

I'm probably going to remove the override bypassing when I next revise the module. mst had a pretty good example of why the bypass would cause trouble, the details of which I've since forgotten. But I want to be sure about which way it should be, to avoid any further churn of this behaviour. -zefram
