Thanks for the feedback :)

I know, and this is in no way a criticism of your implementation! I'm aware of the complexity.
I want to open an opportunity to better inspect problems in pure Perl.
At work we are using many here docs and help in faster identifying root problems would be appreciated.
See it as a potential add on module like diagnostics and not as a feature request for core.

That's why I'm reporting all potential culprits with undef values in the first warning and ignoring all other warnings from the same line.
I don't want to risk that a true positive gets lost because of a false positive.
It's up to the user to find out which are real.
