in reply to Re^4: Syntax checking without BEGIN blocks
in thread Syntax checking without BEGIN blocks
I think it does. He wants to syntax-check code before examining it for security issues. He'd do that for each phase. It's not an all-at-once syntax check, but it does allow syntax-check-before-running.
I don't :-) They want to check everything - note their use case:
I don't want to start messing with the codebase just to check the debug statement I've added.
How do I make perl just check the syntax, and do nothing else?
and that isn't possible in the Perl world.
