in reply to warnings under the debugger

If you put your one-liner into a file, then run that under the debugger, the warning is emitted.

$ perl -d Default die handler restored. Loading DB routines from version 1.07 Editor support available. Enter h or `h h' for help, or `man perldebug' for more help. main::( my $bar = { foo => () }; DB<1> s Odd number of elements in hash assignment at line 6. Debugged program terminated. Use q to quit or R to restart, use O inhibit_exit to avoid stopping after program termination, h q, h R or h O to get additional info. DB<1>
I have no explanation. I don't tend to use the debugger very often, and when I do, I wouldn't use it for just one line of code. I do sometimes use B::Deparse to deconstruct a snippet of code:
perl -MO=Deparse my $bar = {'foo', ()}; syntax OK
Is that more in line with what you really wanted?
