    I suspect Dave probably suggest to wrap Alzabo calls in eval (not exec). This is perl's exception handling mechanism, and does not have the "compile" overhead of eval'ing a string. See perldoc -f eval. Or come to OSCon and see my talk on Perl's Exception Handling Techniques.

      you're absolutely right. it was a think-o. Thanks..

    • No, I recommend wrapping all Alzabo methods in a little script (one per method) and calling that via exec()!

      Really, I swear.

      Talk about performance. Yee haw!

      ;)
