in reply to Code::Police

Ovid, this module fails to work as advertised. I tried it on a colleague and it eliminated *all* of his coding errors. Could you update the documentation?

perl -e 'print "How sweet does a rose smell? "; chomp ($n = <STDIN>); +$rose = "smells sweet to degree $n"; *other_name = *rose; print "$oth +er_name\n"'

    It is quite possible that a programmer using this module could have all coding errors eliminated. However, if they write their own modules and use them (admittedly doubtful if they need this utility), then those other modules will not be corrected by this module. Hence my statement that it will correct most of the errors.

    Just glad I can be of service to the community.

    Cheers,
