I gave that a try with the following result:

user@pt--d830:/data/finder$ perl finder.pl Operator or semicolon missing before &__inline at (eval 117) line 1 (# +1) (S ambiguous) You used a variable or subroutine call where the par +ser was expecting an operator. The parser has assumed you really mean +t to use an operator, but this is highly likely to be incorrect. For example, if you say "*foo *foo" it will be interpreted as if you s +aid "*foo * 'foo'". Operator or semicolon missing before &__inline at (eval 117) line 1. at finder.pl line 9 main::__ANON__('Operator or semicolon missing before &__inline + at (eval 117) ...') called at (eval 117) line 1 eval 'sub __extern_inline () { &extern &__inline;} ;' called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/sys/cdefs.ph line 288 require sys/cdefs.ph called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/features.ph +line 196 require features.ph called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/sys/ioctl.ph +line 7 require sys/ioctl.ph called at finder.pl line 21 Ambiguous use of & resolved as operator & at (eval 117) line 1 (#2) (W ambiguous) %, &, and * are both infix operators (modulus, bitwise and, and multiplication) and initial special characters (denoting hashes, subroutines and typeglobs), and you said somethi +ng like *foo * foo that might be interpreted as either of them. We assumed you meant the infix operator, but please try to make it mo +re clear -- in the example given, you might write *foo * foo() if you really meant to multiply a glob by the result of calling a functio +n. Ambiguous use of & resolved as operator & at (eval 117) line 1. at finder.pl line 9 main::__ANON__('Ambiguous use of & resolved as operator & at ( +eval 117) line 1.\x{a}') called at (eval 117) line 1 eval 'sub __extern_inline () { &extern &__inline;} ;' called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/sys/cdefs.ph line 288 require sys/cdefs.ph called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/features.ph +line 196 require features.ph called at /usr/lib/perl/5.14/sys/ioctl.ph +line 7 require sys/ioctl.ph called at finder.pl line 21
I think this must be an internal thing.
"This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for x86_64-linux-gnu-thread-multi ".
Thanks for the help...

It is always better to have seen your target for yourself, rather than depend upon someone else's description.
