in reply to Redefining Imported Subs: of scope and no

Don't mess with say, it will byte you or a later maintainer of this code.

Instead, (1) define sub debug {...}; with a plain old if inside. (2) Replace all occurences of say with debug(). (3) Replace those say's that aren't really for debugging back again. (4) Re-run your tests to see if anything got lost.

You can then consider moving debug() to a separate module for re-use, or switch to Log4perl altogether as other monk suggests here, or even write a debug_off() sub that replaces debug() on the fly. But at least it's not like "Hey, say() prints nothing! Our perl interpreter must be broken!"

[Corion]: marto: That's cool! I think my (home) desktop spends 30 seconds in the BIOS...
[Corion]: marto: Heh - currently they seem promising, but I think I'll stay with nVidia+Intel for the time being, as I've been bitten too often by bad AMD drivers
Discipulus is (still?) not a big fan of notepad++
[marto]: Corion, I think in the past this was a big problem for them. GPU driver wise the improve all the time. I use the open source drivers on my machine (old R9 270, 2GB) and had no problems
[Discipulus]: is not the problem with new hardware?
[marto]: notepad++ ticks all the boxes for me, it's a fine line between just enough, and bloat, in editors for me :P
[marto]: Discipulus]: less so than the modern intel CPUs
[marto]: also, AMD are faster at fixing the CPU microcode it would seem
