    Simple Statements
    The only kind of simple statement is an expression evaluated for its s
    +ide-effects. Every simple statement must be terminated with a semicol
    +on, unless it is the final statement in a block, in which case the se
    +micolon is optional. But put the semicolon in anyway if the block tak
    +es up more than one line, because you may eventually add another line
    +. Note that there are operators like eval {}, sub {}, and do {} that 
    +look like compound statements, but aren't--they're just TERMs in an e
    +xpression--and thus need an explicit termination when used as the las
    +t item in a statement.
