Fair enough, here it all is, shortened as short as possible:

Contents of MyFile.pm

#!/usr/bin/env perl use warnings; use strict; use feature ':5.10'; package ThatPackage; sub parse { } # Yep, even empty the error occurs, because it never eve +n gets as far as calling it
Contents of unit_test.pl
#!/usr/bin/env perl -w use feature ':5.10'; use Test::More 'no_plan'; require 'MyFile.pm'; my $foo = "blah"; my $bar = " blah"; ok( ThatPackage::parse $foo, " this is a test" ); # fine, test doesn't + pass but runs fine ok( ThatPackage::parse($bar), " this is a test" ); # also fine ok( ThatPackage::parse $bar, " this is a test" ); # error here: 'Can't + call method "ThatPackage::parse" without a package or object referen +ce at unit_test.pl line 43.'
