in reply to Smart Match is not recursive in 5.10

When did you build? How did you generate this error? I am trying it like this:

perl -E 'say 42 ~~ [23,17,"42x",70]'
and generating no error. It actually returns true, like I would expect.

    It's a warning, not an error. Try it with warnings enabled.

        according to this blog...
        this will be false 42 ~~ "42x" this true with a warning 42 ~~ [23, 17, "42x", 70]
        to my mind this is inconsistent and just plain wrong. edit: this is not true on my machine, apologies

        $ perl -E 'say 42 ~~ 1,2,3, "42x"' $ perl -E 'say 42 ~~ 1,2,3, "42"' 1 </code>
