in thread How can i prevent perltidy from adding a semicolon after an ellipsis?

Ah, i see:

karls-mac-mini:monks karl$ perl -E 'sub foo{...}; foo();' Unimplemented at -e line 1. karls-mac-mini:monks karl$ perl -E 'sub bar{...;}; bar();' Unimplemented at -e line 1

Both are valid. I didn't know this.

I didn't run perl -c on the concerning file and thought things went wrong.

On the other hand: I don't want perltidy to change my valid code. Nitpicking, sure.

Thanks and best regards, Karl

    From the docs You can only use the elliptical statement to stand in for a complete statement.

    So the semicolon is needed, if the "yadda yadda" is followed by other statements.

    And a trailing semicolon in a functions body is certainly not bad style.
