in reply to Re: Ambiguous calls
in thread 'Ambiguous call' diagnosis seems ambiguous

Thanks for your suggestion. I agree with you that each is special. According to chromatic's explanation, delete belongs to "weak keywords', and each doesn't. By the way, I'm not sure how to add a BEGIN block to my code. Would you please attach your code?

    I think choroba’s point is that you can use BEGIN blocks to determine when the warning is issued. For example:

    #! perl use strict; use warnings; BEGIN { print "BEGIN 1\n"; } sub each { warn 'main::each() was called' } BEGIN { print "BEGIN 2\n"; } sub delete { warn 'main::delete() was called' } BEGIN { print "BEGIN 3\n"; } my %person = (name => 'Ken Takakura'); while (my ($key, $val) = each %person) { print "$key: $val\n"; } delete $person{name}; BEGIN { print "BEGIN 4\n"; }

    produces this output:

    BEGIN 1 BEGIN 2 BEGIN 3 Ambiguous call resolved as CORE::each(), qualify as such or use & at 1 +66_SoPW.pl line 13. BEGIN 4 name: Ken Takakura

    which shows that the warning is issued during the compile phase (before the main code is executed) at the point where the code specifies an ambiguous call to each.

    This works because BEGIN blocks are executed during compilation, as soon as they are seen by the Perl compiler, before the main code is run. See BEGIN, UNITCHECK, CHECK, INIT and END.

    HTH,

      Thanks for your explanation. That makes sense. If I added a BEGIN block to the end of my code, 'Ambiguous call' warning would appear before the block was executed, right? Your code shows that warnings pragma complains about each %person at the compile phase. Thanks a lot :)
