Finally. After running perltidy on the module, it's syntax Ok. Perltidy add/removes whitespaces only, right? What could I have messed up with them, I thought whitespaces doesn't really matter. This is not python :D

    No, whitespace doesn't mostly matter, but maybe you invoked the MACRO precompiler features ( perlrun ) or loaded a source filter via PERL5OPT or something like that, something that inserted an extra stray curly brace or square bracket

    Did you save a copy of the broken one? Did you  use Data::Dumper; use Path::Tiny; dd( path( $file )->slurp_raw ) ;

      Yes I had use Data::Dumper; before "use - this broken module". Why would that be a problem?

        I didn't say that (what do you think the rest of the code was about?). I asked if you employed ddumperBasic debugging checklist Basic debugging checklist item 4 , to see what the bytes are in the file

    I suggested perltidy because it will sometimes complain about missing braces, etc, and give you the line number that was unmatched in a way different than perl -c will in the log file. You are indeed most correct that white space doesn't matter. But that doesn't mean that a silly typo doesn't creep in now and again. :)

    On time, cheap, compliant with final specs. Pick two.
