There's a charming example in the Perl Cookbook that ties global $_ so you get diagnostics when $_ is used globally (modified to be able to carp instead of croak if you want):
# croak on global underscore usage: # no Underscore; # carp on global underscore usage: # no Underscore 'carp'; package Underscore; use Carp (); my $complain = \&Carp::croak; sub TIESCALAR { bless \(my $dummy) => shift } sub FETCH { $complain->("read access to \$_ forbidden") } sub STORE { $complain->("write access to \$_ forbidden") } sub unimport { tie($_, __PACKAGE__); $complain = \&Carp::carp if $_[1] eq 'carp'; } sub import { untie $_ } tie($_, __PACKAGE__) unless tied $_; 1;
And you save it as Underscore.pm and use it by just adding a no Underscore; or no Underscore 'croak'; . Or you can do it at the command line, of course, using perl -M-Underscore myprog.pl or perl -M-Underscore=carp myprog.pl

    marto wonders what fresh hell the firefox update has brought, apart from maxing out CPUs
    1nickt was looking into Firefox Extended Support releases yesterday. You don't have to go with the updates!
    [erix]: wonderfully red sun here
    [LanX]: FF has become a source of instability :(
    [1nickt]: erix not so wonderful for the lungs :-(
    [erix]: the stuff is pretty high up as I understand it; I have not felt any effect on lungs/breathing
