Update: and here's an answer for 8, although you might take it as cheating as it requires an adittional option on the command line to be set.

Update: you can give the switch in the shebang line too. If you write this to a file and execute it with perl, it works.

    You don't need any switches!

    BEGIN{$^P=0x22;sub DB::DB{++$foo==2 and die}}

    (I am pretty sure that is not the official solution, by the way, and it means that 8 does not need to exploit actual bugs.)

    updated: Oops, copied a wrong version initially. One character difference.
