A BEGIN block is not marked by the sub keyword. Instead, you just use BEGIN {...}

It can be, though. "sub BEGIN" doesn't create a normal sub called BEGIN, but it is valid syntax. In fact, it is how B::Deparse deparses BEGIN blocks. The same goes for CHECK, INIT and END. See also what perlmod has to say about this.

Juerd # { site => 'juerd.nl', plp_site => 'plp.juerd.nl', do_not_use => 'spamtrap' }
