( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
Crossposted from p5p :

This reduces to :
use strict; use warnings; sub foo { if (1) { return do { 1; } } } sub bar { if (1) { return do { my $x; 1; } } } sub baz { if (1) { return scalar do { my $x; 1; } } } my $x = foo; my $y = bar; my $z = baz; print "#$x#\n"; print "#$y#\n"; print "#$z#\n";
This looks like a duplicate of "my" old bug #38809. If you turn warnings on, you'll notice that bar returns undef. This seems to have to do with the return context, since changing to return scalar do fixes the problem.

Edit: When ran into taint mode, foo fails too.

Edit^2: Bah, exactly what kyle said !
