in thread How to grab Parse::RecDescent error output in a variable?

The reason local breaks it is that local replaces the variable in that lexical scope, and the references to P::RD::ERROR in P/RD.pm are outside the lexical scope of the local invocation (I think).

It's an interesting question though, and IMO the right solution would be to get a patch committed for P::RD that allows the user to specify an alternative filehandle for error output.

    Done, and also received feedback already! Here's the bug report: https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=39323

    And here's the solution I was seeking, based on demo/demo_errors.pl:

    use strict; use Data::Dumper; use Parse::RecDescent; # Simple Lisp S-expressions (as an example) my $grammar = q# start: expression(s?) | { die join("\n", map { $_->[0] } @{ $thisparser->{errors} } +)."\n" } expression: /\w+/ | '(' expression(s?) ')' { $item[2] } | <error> #; my $p = Parse::RecDescent->new($grammar); # This will die if there is an error. print Dumper($p->start('(foo (bar))')); # Like so: $p->start('(foo');
