NAME
       overloading - perl pragma to lexically control overloading

SYNOPSIS
           {
               no overloading;
               my $str = "$object"; # doesn't call stringification overload
           }

           # it's lexical, so this stringifies:
           warn "$object";

           # it can be enabled per op
           no overloading qw("");
           warn "$object";

           # and also reenabled
           use overloading;

DESCRIPTION
       This pragma allows you to lexically disable or enable overloading.

       "no overloading"
             Disables overloading entirely in the current lexical scope.

       "no overloading @ops"
             Disables only specific overloads in the current lexical scope.

       "use overloading"
             Reenables overloading in the current lexical scope.

       "use overloading @ops"
             Reenables overloading only for specific ops in the current
             lexical scope.
