do will always recompile your Perl code, while Execute will only when the
code changes. If the code never changes you can also use require. In case
you use require you should place your code in a separate package to avoid
namespace problems. Execute has a little bit more overhead on the first run,
but will be faster on the following invocations. require is even faster,
because it does not test if the source file has changed.
