AcidHawk has asked for the
wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:
I have been away for the longest time and happened on this comment today.
A bigger issue is using &subname to call subs instead of subname() - that really doesn't do what you think it does. - in this thread Re: What to use instead of global variables
So I wondered what the difference was. I wrote the following as a SIMPLE test to see if anything jumped out at me.
When I do a "perl -c myScript.pl" I get the following
main::test2() called too early to check prototype at myScript.pl line 10. myScript.pl syntax OK
And when I run the script it seems to work with no problems. Other than I get the same warning and in the syntax check before the output. Now I do realise that I could simply remove the use warnings; from my script but I was wondering -
Of all the things I've lost in my life, its my mind I miss the most.
