Re: Prototypes being ignored with use_ok() from Test:More ? (colon)

in reply to Prototypes being ignored with use_ok() from Test:More ?

BEGIN { use_ok( ... ) } uses a BEGIN block. BEGIN:{ use_ok( ... ) } uses "BEGIN" as a useless label. Drop the colon.

Or just stop using use_ok(). I see no value in it.

    Bingo! Thank you very much. I hadn't noticed the pesky colon, nor realised it would make so much difference.

[LanX]: sure

[MidLifeXis]: And under MINGW64_NT-6.1 MYHOST 2.6.0(0.304/5/3) 2016-09-09 09:46 x86_64 Msys there seem to be issues with escapes in external build tool calls.
[Corion]: I mean, it's a technical feat it achieves, but... why? ;)
