vsespb has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

I am inventing some workarounds for this Re: Circular dependencies when using the perl syntax checker problem, and I want to detect that current program run is not a real run but just a syntax check (with "perl -c").

What is the best way to detect this. Currently I only see that $0 is empty in this case.

BEGIN/CHECK/UNITCHECK/END/etc and GLOBAL_PHASE does not look helpful here

    See the $^C variable in perlvar please.

      Thank you! That's it!
