It doesn't look like you will pass any arguments to log(), caller seems to provide anything you are looking for.

If you later check for production environment and set

sub log {}
then it will be optimized and not appear in the opcodes.

If you are still worried, use a name you can easily find and delete, like __LOG__, even a source filter doing this should be very safe.

But please search the archives for older discussions, this is certainly not the first one.

) or even better, use Damian's approach from Smart::Comments and use a source filter only in testing mode to enable log() by deleting the '#' with s/;#LOG/;LOG;/g

s/a/b/ ;#LOG
