I see your point, though your example is lacking.

Yes, $s+++ is a syntax error. However, the previous statement should be completely resolved before the syntax error is encountered. my $s = shift . '!'; is a complete statement.

In my example, the syntax error causes the warning, even though the warning is bogus. Thereafter any statement using that variable also causes a warning. There seems to be some queue for warnings and error messages, and no particular priority.

    The single statement $s+1 = shift . '!'; causes both a warning and an error usefully. That's the usual case.
