Can't locate object method "se" via package "warnings"

slugger415 has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Dear Monks, some users are getting this error message when running a script I've written:

Can't locate object method "se" via package "warnings" at C:/Perl/5.14 +.2/lib/ line 3.

I cannot reproduce this message. Can anyone explain what it means and how to resolve it?

FWIW I have these modules:

require 5.10.0; use open ':encoding(utf8)'; use threads; use threads::shared; use strict; use warnings; use Encode; use Carp; use File::Path; use File::Basename; use File::Spec; use IC_TOC; is a custom module that also uses strict and warnings.

thanks, Scott

Update: I posted a reply down the chain here but wanted to get it up top too. Hi all, I suspect the problem was something in the user's Path statement that was hijacking the process. She cleaned out her Path, reinstalled Perl and it seems to be working better now. I appreciate the help -- sorry for a false (Perl) alarm.

thanks -- Scott

    Can you check c:\perl\5.14.2\lib\ It should start with

    package threads; use 5.008; use strict; use warnings;

    But, for some reason, perl thinks the file has se warnings; on line 3.

      The user confirmed her has that exact text.

      Again, I can't replicate this on my (Win 7) system. She's on XP if that matters.

      thank you.

        Make sure c:\perl\5.14.2\lib\ uses Windows line endings (CRLF, not LF).

        (LF should be fine, but I know there's a circumstance in which the use of CRLF is assumed. I can't remember what it was specifically, but it could cause the start of the file to be misindentified.)
