NAME

       if - "use" a Perl module if a condition holds


SYNOPSIS

         use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGUMENTS;


DESCRIPTION

       The construct

         use if CONDITION, MODULE => ARGUMENTS;

       has no effect unless "CONDITION" is true.  In this case the effect is
       the same as of

         use MODULE ARGUMENTS;

       Above "=>" provides necessary quoting of "MODULE".  If not used (e.g.,
       no ARGUMENTS to give), you'd better quote "MODULE" yourselves.


BUGS

       The current implementation does not allow specification of the required
       version of the module.
