Nothing in perldelta describes this difference; can't find any ref's via google or search on 5.10/mulitple/package.

Oddity: with use v5.10.0 (in any of the stringy versions), a second package delivers a syntax error. For example, the code below fails with:

syntax error at line 6, near "package bar"

Adding semi-colons after the sub's allows the code to compile, but I don't remember seeing anything about semicolons being required after sub def's -- even ones before package declarations.

Or is there something else in the perldelta that I've missed?

use v5.10.0; package foo; foo {} package foo::bar; bar {} 1 __END_
so much for my editing skills -- sorry for wasting your time -- the original was frying itself with the subs in place.

In reply to 5.10.0 seems to break package by lembark

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
