this POD is either confusing or plain wrong

    Beginning in v5.26.0, the referencing operator can come after my, state, our, or local. This syntax must be enabled with use feature 'declared_refs' . It is experimental, and will warn by default unless no warnings experimental::refaliasing is in effect.

In reality is the warning disabled with no warnings 'experimental::declared_refs';

the experimental::refaliasing warning belongs to

Sample code:

use strict; use warnings; use Data::Dump qw/pp dd/; use feature qw( declared_refs refaliasing say ); no warnings 'experimental::refaliasing'; my $a = [666]; my @a; \@a = $a; say $a[0]; no warnings 'experimental::declared_refs'; my \@arr = [42];

C:/Strawberry/perl/bin\perl.exe -w d:/tmp/pm/ 666 Compilation finished at Sat Oct 16 14:45:33

NB: that use feature qw(declared_refs) doesn't seem to make sense without the other feature.

my \@arr; without assignment will create a new warning "Useless use of single ref constructor in void context"

In reply to POD for use feature 'declared_refs' wrong by LanX

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.
