Module::Refresh - Refresh %INC files when updated on disk
# During each request, call this once to refresh changed modules:
# Each night at midnight, you automatically download the latest
# Acme::Current from CPAN. Use this snippet to make your running
# program pick it up off disk:
This module is a generalization of the functionality provided by
Apache::StatINC and Apache::Reload. Its designed to make it
easy to do simple iterative development when working in a persistent
It does not require mod_perl.
Initialize the module refresher.
Refresh all modules that have mtimes on disk newer than the newest ones weve got.
Calls new to initialize the cache if it had not yet been called.
Specifically, it will renew any module that was loaded before the previous call
to refresh (or new) and has changed on disk since then. If a module was
both loaded for the first time <B>andB> changed on disk between the previous call
and this one, it will <B>notB> be reloaded by this call (or any future one); you
will need to update the modification time again (by using the Unix touch command or
making a change to it) in order for it to be reloaded.
If $module has been modified on disk, refresh it. Otherwise, do nothing
Refresh a module. It doesnt matter if its already up to date. Just do it.
Note that it only accepts module names like Foo/Bar.pm, not Foo::Bar.
Remove a module from %INC, and remove all subroutines defined in it.
Get the last modified time of $file in seconds since the epoch;
Updates the cached last modified time for $file.
Wipe out subs defined in $file.
When we walk the symbol table to whack reloaded subroutines, we dont
have a good way to invalidate the symbol table properly, so we mess up
on things like global variables that were previously set.
