( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

So I think the better solution is to extend this warning / practice to FETCH- and STORE-type subs, rather than having code that uses $@ have to be paranoid that $@ might be tied to something that uses eval in its FETCH. Such a FETCH should be considered "broken" from a "best practices" point of view.

Being paranoid about $@ changing on you is not a bad practice. I'm just saying that in comparison, using eval w/o local($@) in a FETCH is a worse practice. And that is especially true for a FETCH meant to be used with $@.

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.
