in reply to RFC: Suggestion for future version of perl
As a developer, this would be nice. Unfortunately, this would break existing Perl code that is not strict or warnings clean. Actually, this might even break some core tests that rely on the fact that strict and warnings are not enabled.
Test your modules with bleadperl!
rsync -avz rsync://public.activestate.com/perl-current/ . ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/path/to/test/perl make test make install
Now, please test you modules! If you have test failures that don't happen with Perl 5.8.8, send a simplified test case to
perlbug at perl.org
