in thread detecting $& usage
Thanks to everyone for all the help. This is a great site!
Yes, the engineers are smart and numerous.
Its hard to stop all the engineers from coding the wrong thing. Currently, the only indicator is a servere code slow down. I would prefer a more explicit indicator - a warning or blocked access. Thus, this thread.
Scanning the user code is not that useful as many engineers will include (require/use) code from libraries. So, the check difficult.
Its unfortunate that the test of "defined $&" causes the slow down.
I will have to try the blocking tricks.
