force recursive source filtering

Discussion in 'Perl' started by Andrew Schulman, Dec 24, 2008.

  1. I want to apply a source filter, via say Filter::Simple, not just to a
    particular source file, but to all of the source files that it may do, require,
    or use. E.g., if I've built a source filter in mySourceFilter, then in

    use mySourceFilter;
    use custommodule;
    print ...

    the code that resides in the above source file will be filtered, but the code
    that it reads in from will not. This is what says, and my observation confirms it.

    What I want is to modify the do, require, and use statements to automatically
    apply mySourceFilter to every file they load. But I don't know how.

    Anyone done this? Suggestions?

  2. The newsgroup comp.lang.perl is defunct. Try comp.lang.perl.misc.

    Thank you.
