( #3333=superdoc: print w/ replies, xml ) Need Help??
Operator or semicolon missing before &__inline at (eval 117) line 1 (# +1) (S ambiguous) You used a variable or subroutine call where the par +ser was expecting an operator. The parser has assumed you really mean +t to use an operator, but this is highly likely to be incorrect. For . +..
This warning appears every time I run this program, but it runs anyway.
I am stumped by '&__inline at (eval 117) line 1 (#1)', since I have no evals; the only '&' characters are in '&&' (logical and); and line 117 is a '}' only.

Where/what is the offending code??

-- UPDATE ------ I found the same message in a Ubuntu bug report. It is a 1-line include with +W processing. https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/perl/+bug/1045250
But no description of Why or what it means.

-- UPDATE 2 ----
removing

require 'sys/ioctl.ph;
stopped the warning message from appearing, and also clean compiles.
replacing with:
{ no warnings; require 'sys/ioctl.ph; }
did not stop the warnings.

It is always better to have seen your target for yourself, rather than depend upon someone else's description.
