I didn't want to use the weenie method and localize the warning variable to stop this warning; what is the correct way to fix this?

Mabey you aren't using a variable, but I think this isn't in the spirit of what the poster wants.

    Maybe it is, maybe it isn't, but it is the best way to do it. The only other things you can do are add lots of tests or turn off all warnings. Lots of tests can be clunky, and no warnings at all means you have to keep the code locked in the basement where nobody can see it. ;)

    But, most of the complaints about the old way of turning off warnings aren't relevant to the new pragma. It _is_ bad to be messing with localized vars to control the compiler or interpreter. It got the job done, but I'm sure happy for the warnings pragma and filehandles as objects... it lets me throw local out of my box altogether.

[1nickt]: But the bands are even louder! I saw Spearhead (Michael Franti) at an outdoor show and had to walk a mile away to not feel pain in my chest! Babies were crying ... I asked the sound engineer why it was necessary to have the bass so loud and he laughed...
[Discipulus]: but the best i attended live was Mano Negra Patchanka at Forte Prenestino .. in 1990
[Corion]: Hmmm - Mano Negra or at least Manu Chao seem to put on a good live show. At least the one live CD I have from Manu Chao sounds good ;)
Discipulus feels the same jealousity of the johngg's daughter
[1nickt]: choroba I agree
