in thread how to check syntax of code inside a scalar?

What if you always inject a
BEGIN {exit}
will it still do the compile step?
the hardest line to type correctly is: stty erase ^H

    I't wouldn't do the compile step, but because this happens early, it would pretty well bypass any syntax checking whatsoever:
    perl -c -e 'BEGIN{exit}; BEGIN{print "yay\n"};@&$^^#@!.' -e syntax OK
