The line number to be used by warnings is set by an nextstate op that's placed at the start of each statement. These are the lines numbers used by B::Xref.

A while loop statement starts with an enterloop op that should only be executed when the loop is entered, not every pass of the loop. As such, the bottom of the loop continues directly to the loop condition rather than the start of the statement. This bypasses the opcode that sets the line number.

Therefore, according to the way the ops are stored, the condition is considered part of the while loop statement, as well as part of the last statement of the loop.

It might be possible for B::Xref to be smarter, but it's really a problem with Perl itself.

use strict; use warnings; my $c = 0; while ( warn("x"), ++$c<2 ) { my $dummy; }
x at line 5. x at line 6.

It seems to me this could be solved by placing a nextstate at the start of the while loop condition. I don't know why this isn't done.

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
