in reply to Question about ellipsis statement '...'

It would be interesting to know which behavior you rather wanted/expected.

If it's just a no-op, try triple semi-colons as visual indicator


or a comment

#TODO yadda yadda

If you want a warning instead of a die you could define your own sub __todo__

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; package BLA; # poor mans import BEGIN { *__todo__ = \&TODO::__todo__; } sub add { my ( $arg1,$arg2 ) = @_ ; __todo__ "check argument type"; return $arg1+$arg2; } add 1,2; # other module package TODO; use Carp; sub __todo__ { carp "TODO: $_[0]"; }

TODO: check argument type at d:/tmp/pm/ line 17.


improved demo with packages
