in thread perl 5.12: 32 bit to 64 bit transition

package fred; sub fred{ print 'Fred says hi' } package main;; fred::fred;; Fred says hi print defined *{$fred::fred}{CODE};; [Can't use an undefined value as a symbol reference at (eval 21) line +1 print defined *{fred::fred}{CODE};; Ambiguous use of *{fred::fred} resolved to *fred::fred at (eval 19) li +ne 1, 1 print defined *{fred::bill}{CODE};; *{$_} = \&{"fred::$_"} for 'fred';; fred();; Fred says hi

In a nutshell, dropping the $ from next unless defined *{$Net::POP3::{$_}}{CODE};

To give next unless defined *{Net::POP3::{$_}}{CODE}; should work.

Though that would still issue a warning, so try:next unless defined *{"Net::POP3::$_"}{CODE};.

    Thanks -- the suggestions helped get rid of the warning/error messages. However, there must be some other incompatibility since the code does not work as expected. I'll have to do what I was trying to avoid, viz., having to dig into the code to find out which pieces stop working in the new system. While doing this I'll also look to replacing the unmaintained CPAN modules with others such as NET::POP3_auth, Net::POP3::SSLWrapper, and NET::SMTP_auth.
