I entirely agree that letting cavalier coding errors slip silently by is a Very Bad Thing.

The pack function is one of those many built-in functions that is much improved by being wrapped with a fatalizing envelope. Something as simple as this should suffice:

*CORE::GLOBAL::pack = sub ($@) { use warnings FATAL => "pack"; return CORE::pack(shift(), @_); };
That will catch a lot of bugs that risk being carelessly ignored.

Hope this helps.
