overloading - perl pragma to lexically control overloading

{
    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;

This pragma allows you to lexically disable or enable overloading.

"no overloading @ops"
