Not so fast. What if beginner is facing some lazily written module/code which fails with -w? To avoid frustration, we should suggest that:
  1. -w is lazy, version-independent way to get warnings
  2. if it fails, and they are using perl above 5.6.0, then they should use warnings after failing module was used.

    Point 2 can be hidden in link, named "if -w fails", so only point 1 will be visible.

    I am sure somebody can write it in better english. : )

    Just my $0.02.

    I think we are going to another extreme: from not enough links for newbies, to spending too much time on dicussion about links for newbies....

    Let them to do some homework, to have some fun, too.

To make errors is human. But to make million errors per second, you need a computer.

Title:
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.
