Subject: B::Utils disables global warnings
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 435b
B::Utils disables global warnings (the "-w" flag and $^W variable) when it is loaded. While global warniongs flag is problematic and discouraged, it is bad for a module to change global variable. $ perl -w -le 'BEGIN { print $^W }; use B::Utils; print $^W;' 1 0 The cause is "BEGIN { $^W = 0 }" when setting up trace. I would think that since that is already in BEGIN block, that "local $^W = 0;" would work and fix the errors.
