( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
As the following demo shows is caller(1) reporting the name of the calling sub + package.

In the case of a named subroutine one is able to get the code-ref of the caller by inspecting the STASH.

But this doesn't work with anonymous subs.

Caller claims they are part of the stash (here main::__ANON__ ) but accessing the associated code-ref fails. It most likely a newly autovivificated code-ref.

Any better way to get the callers code-ref?

First the output

CURRENT SUB: CODE(0x24c9198) main::upper CODE(0x24c9198) CURRENT SUB: CODE(0x24e8568) main::__ANON__ CODE(0x24c0580) # <--- OOPS

Here the demo:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; use feature "current_sub","say"; sub lower { my %caller; package DB { @caller{ qw/ package filename line subroutine hasarg +s wantarray evaltext is_require hints bitmas +k hinthash / } = caller(1); }; my $caller_name = $caller{subroutine}; my $caller_ref =\&{$caller_name};; say $caller_name," ",$caller_ref; } # --- normal sub upper { say "CURRENT SUB: ",__SUB__; lower( "UPPER" ); } upper(); # --- ano sub my $ano = sub { say "CURRENT SUB: ",__SUB__; lower("ANNO"); }; $ano->();
