in reply to Name "main::a" used only once: possible typo

This is a common problem with no known great solution (if there is a great solution I hope someone will show it so that we can submit patches). It also annoys anyone using List::MoreUtils pairwise, for about the same reason. Several ideas were tossed around in the List::MoreUtils RT as to how to fix the problem, but none were ideal, and none fixed it in 100% of use cases (including my attempt).

The easiest solution is still annoying, and looks like this:

reduce { no warnings 'once'; $a * $b } 1 .. 6;

Update: I see that the List::Util RT suggests something like this:

reduce { our ( $a, $b ); $a * $b } 1 .. 6;

      I'd probably put the our ($a,$b) outside of that block, but this is what I had in mind. I was just interested in more options. - Thanks
      out ($a, $b); reduce { $a * $b } 1 .. 6;
        I was just interested in more options.

        This is kind of old-school and amounts to the same thing as sticking an  our ($a, $b); statement somewhere, but it's another option:

        >perl -wMstrict -le "use List::Util qw/reduce/; use vars qw($a $b); ;; print reduce { $a * $b } 1..6; " 720
