Maybe the compiler's not the right tool to catch these errors.

It's a hard nut to crack because of things like AUTOLOAD, Autosplit, and run-time access to class symbol tables. We won't even get into the abomination that is multiple dispatch, because I'm still wrapping it around my brain.

I catch a lot more errors running unit tests on my code than I do running it through the compiler and looking for warnings. If you exercise your code paths sufficiently as bikeNomad suggests, you'd get closer to what you want than the compiler can provide.

It's not exactly what you want, but it's working pretty well for me.

    [Corion]: ambrus: Oh - that one would be much harder to automate... The SYNOPSIS section should mostly be a runnable program IMO, but I write only small snippets in my documentation for single functions/methods, and creating the appropriate environment for ...
    [Corion]: ... those in an automated fashion seems somewhat hard to me. Although it should do wonders for the test coverage ;)
    [haukex]: Corion: I once wrote an automated thingy for that here
    [haukex]: here's the code that uses it
    [Corion]: haukex: Hmm - maybe I can reuse that. I see that it uses Pod::Parser, which I think was one of the more fragile parsers. But if I'm statically (re)generating the tests instead of doing that "live" on the client/tester machines, that's a much smaller...
    [Corion]: ... problem space than trying to cater to all versions of Pod::Parser(s)
