in thread How to make warnings disappear

Could that be called constructive destruction ? :-)

I was just thinking, why hasn't this "disgusting" "ignore" business been deprecated ? Then again, I guess that would be counterintuitive. After all, they were introduced to avoid warnings from -w. But they could surely be removed all together ? As long as they match m/\w+/ or some such ?

    Excuse me? Please think about what you are saying!

    Just how do you propose to deprecate the absence of a warning? Maybe you want Perl to emit a warning message that says Useless use of "ig" constant in void context may produce a warning in a future version of Perl?

    Huh?

      Sorry for thinking aloud in my previous post. But you did read the whole post, right ?
