Hi Karl, the doc for ... shows it used with a semi-colon, and it doesn't seem to cause an error for me ... what's the issue with the semi-colon?


The way forward always starts with a minimal test.

    Ah, i see:

    karls-mac-mini:monks karl$ perl -E 'sub foo{...}; foo();' Unimplemented at -e line 1. karls-mac-mini:monks karl$ perl -E 'sub bar{...;}; bar();' Unimplemented at -e line 1

    Both are valid. I didn't know this.

    I didn't run perl -c on the concerning file and thought things went wrong.

    On the other hand: I don't want perltidy to change my valid code. Nitpicking, sure.

    Thanks and best regards, Karl

      From the docs You can only use the elliptical statement to stand in for a complete statement.

      So the semicolon is needed, if the "yadda yadda" is followed by other statements.

      And a trailing semicolon in a functions body is certainly not bad style.
