Official Mirror
Given a list of Perl modules/filenames, Devel::Hide makes require and use
statements fail (no matter the specified files/modules are installed or not).
They die with a message like:
Can't locate Module/ (hidden)
The original intent of Devel::Hide is to allow Perl developers to test for
alternative behavior when some modules are not available. In a Perl
installation, where many modules are already installed, there is a chance to
screw things up because you take for granted things that may not be there in
other machines.
