If implemented, this change would make a mockery of any claims that Perl 7 will just be "Perl 5 with different defaults", as well as any expectations that it could be used to run "clean" (by some definition) Perl 5 code without modification.
Looks like a valid objection. I agree. With certain formatting style it is possible. But do you understand the strict as the default will break a lot of old scripts too. Per your critique, it probably should not be made as the default and implemented as pragma similar to warnings and strict. Let's call this pragma "softsemicolon"

What most people here do not understand is it can be implemented completely on lexical scanner level, not affecting syntax analyser.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
