in reply to Edifact anyone?

G'day Skeeve,

The warnings are explained in "perl5180delta: The smartmatch family of features are now experimental".

As you indicated "it's real customer data", I'll assume production code. I'd caution against using experimental features in production code.

I see you've raised a bug report (#91446). This would have been useful information in your OP as an update.

It also appears the module author has provided a fix. Again, useful information for an update to your OP. When you upgrade and test the fix, please also indicate the outcome.

    You're not alone, but you don't say why?

      "You're not alone, but you don't say why?"

      Skeeve's been here for 10 years and has made 799 posts. He probably knows "why". He certainly knows how to ask if he doesn't.

        So why don't you say why? Not everybody knows (I don't)

    Sorry for not updating the OP, but it was a bit busy yesterday. Thanks for linking it. I also did not see the fix yet.

    It might become production data and so I did not want to "reinvent the wheel" but stick to existing modules. The "experimental" warnings scared me a bit, but looking at the code, I think It could be rewritten as:

    given(something) -> SWITCH: for(something) when(/test/) -> /test/ && do {

    s$$([},&%#}/&/]+}%&{})*;#$&&s&&$^X.($'^"%]=\&(|?*{%
    +.+=%;.#_}\&"^"-+%*).}%:##%}={~=~:.")&e&&s""`$''`"e
