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

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.
