confess 'Some error happened because ' . $obj->foo . ' blew up';
If those were double-quotes instead of single-quotes (which they probably were) then the warning was precisely correct.

No, that can't be it, because the strings in question contain none of the things Critic cares about, namely unescaped $. or @. and escaped metachars. I suspect that your parser is not detecting the fact that the confess argument is actually three strings concantenated together, and it's thinking the $obj is inside the string.

Anyway, I can't verify any of the above, since I can't get the confess line to trigger a warning from the web-based Critic now.

A word spoken in Mind will reach its own level, in the objective world, by its own weight
