in reply to Switch Module on Perl 5.8.0


Switch is a source filter, so that comes with extra-crunchy behavior at times. I'm not up on the fine details of where it will bite you, but that may be the case. What do you get from Deparse when you comment out "use Switch", etc.? The results you show certainly raise eyebrows.

    This is the output from Deparse when the 'use Switch' is commented out.
    die "Error: $!" unless open my $fh, '<', '/tmp/test_file.txt'; while (defined(my $line = <$fh> )) { print "$line\n"; } close $fh;
    When I saw this, I thought maybe the Switch module was adding the File::Glob statement but when I scanned the Switch module, I didn't immediately see why it would even do such a thing.
