Sub::Current(3)	      User Contributed Perl Documentation      Sub::Current(3)

NAME
       Sub::Current - Get the current subroutine

SYNOPSIS
	   use Sub::Current;
	   sub f {
	       # ...
	       if ($some_condition) {
		   # let's recurse!
		   ROUTINE->();
	       }
	       # ...
	   }

DESCRIPTION
       Sub::Current makes available a function "ROUTINE()", that returns a
       code reference pointing at the currently	executing subroutine.

       In a special block (BEGIN, END, CHECK, INIT, and	UNITCHECK in Perl
       5.10) this function will	return undef.

       Outside of a special block (that	is, at the top level of	a program)
       "ROUTINE()" will	return undef as	well.

       Note: on	perl 5.16.0 and	later you can use the built-in "__SUB__"
       instead,	enabled	by the pragma "use feature 'current_sub'".
