in thread A short whishlist of Perl5 improvements leaping to Perl7

should be mentioned that Perl has an "used only once" warning
True, but (in the context of this thread) even that would only save you from unique typos. Make the same typo twice and the typoed name is no longer "used only once".

    Sure, but there is always a risk assessment in life ...

    ... there is no vaccination against car accidents!

    On a side note: Repeated typos happen for me when I use auto-completion in my IDE. But if I already have an IDE I can run a linter on the fly warning me from names with close Levenshtein distance.
