Whoops. yep. Had that in all the others, missed it on this one. But adding it didn't change the result.

    What do you get from perl -MO=Deparse,-p script.pl for the offending chunk?
      I'll admit I haven't run the deparse before... so I can't read it very well (at least for this try catch stuff... But For the code that was added simply to prove that otherwise is defined.
      do { (my($k) = 2); 'sysAssert'->throw('test assert') }->try('err'->catch(do { (my($ex) = @_); print("caught by with\n"); dPrt('warn', " with $ex") }->with(do { (my($ex) = @_); print("caught by otherwise \n"); dPrt('warn', "OTHERWISE:$ex") }->otherwise)));
      For the original offending code that generates the error about can't call method "otherwise"... that I am trying to fix...
      if (($pbOnDStarMachine == 1)) { (my($sComm) = "sudo dchown nhmgenda '$$this{'sFullPath'}'"); do { libs::exec("$sComm") }->try('err'->catch(do { (my($ex) = @_); dPrt('warn', "$ex") }->with(do { (my($ex) = @_); dPrt('warn', "OTHERWISE:$ex") }->otherwise))); return(''); }

        No surprise. It just confirms that Perl thinks you have indirect method calls where you didn't mean use such. In both cases.

        Could you place the following just before your sub and provide the output:

        BEGIN { no strict 'refs'; no warnings 'uninitialized'; printf("package %s\n", __PACKAGE__); for (qw( try catch with otherwise err )) { printf("%s: exists:%s defined:%s prototype:%s\n", $_, exists(&{$_}) || 0, defined(&{$_}) || 0, prototype($_), ); } }

        Update: Removed bad slashes.
