8.5 autouse

Pragma for postponing the loading of a module from compile time to execution time. The module isn't loaded until one of its subroutines is used; the subroutines all have to be exported by the module.

use autouse module => qw(sub1 [sub2 ...])
Use with care, since problems that might otherwise be found during compilation won't crop up until your program is already executing.
