Re: using modules with 'no warnings' in perl 5.005

in reply to using modules with 'no warnings' in perl 5.005

Creating a mock warnings.pm and putting it on CPAN, was actually discussed at the p5p BOF at YAPC::Europe. Unfortunately (and this is my opinion) it was deciced to not do this (yet) because of the uncertainty of all the ramifications, particularly involving version numbers (you don't want CPAN installing perl 5.8.0 because some module author added warnings.pm as a prerequisite, for instance).

However, you can mock it like this:

BEGIN { unless (eval "require warnings;") { eval <<EOD; sub warnings::import {}; sub warnings::unimport {}; EOD $INC{'warnings.pm'} = 'I do not really exist'; } } #BEGIN

    Everybody is too eval(string) happy for my tastes ;)
    BEGIN { eval { require warnings; 1 } or do { no strict 'refs'; *warnings::import = *warnings::unimport = sub{}; $INC{'warnings.pm'}=''; }; }

    I run a Win32 PPM repository for perl 5.6.x and 5.8.x -- I take requests (README).

      Ok, fair enough.

      One question though: the 1 in line 4 of your code seems superfluous to me. A successful 'require warnings' should return a true value anyway, no?

        Yup, it's just a force of habit, like including a "1;" at the "official" end of every package within a single file.
