Maybe the compiler's not the right tool to catch these errors.

It's a hard nut to crack because of things like AUTOLOAD, Autosplit, and run-time access to class symbol tables. We won't even get into the abomination that is multiple dispatch, because I'm still wrapping it around my brain.

I catch a lot more errors running unit tests on my code than I do running it through the compiler and looking for warnings. If you exercise your code paths sufficiently as bikeNomad suggests, you'd get closer to what you want than the compiler can provide.

It's not exactly what you want, but it's working pretty well for me.

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.
