Running the following code emits the same warnings for all the three usages of isa. I'd expect something else when reading "This can generate many extra warnings, but they're more specific as to the actual wrong practice and they usually suggest proper fixes" in the documentation. #!/usr/bin/perl use warnings; use strict; use UNIVERSAL::isa 'verbose'; my $x = bless {}, 'MyClass'; warn "$] $UNIVERSAL::isa::VERSION\n"; warn $x->isa('MyClass'); warn $x->UNIVERSAL::isa('MyClass'); warn UNIVERSAL::isa($x, 'MyClass'); Output on my machine: 5.018002 1.20150614 Called UNIVERSAL::isa() as a function, not a method at ./2.pl line 10. 1 at ./2.pl line 10. Called UNIVERSAL::isa() as a function, not a method at ./2.pl line 11. 1 at ./2.pl line 11. Called UNIVERSAL::isa() as a function, not a method at ./2.pl line 12. 1 at ./2.pl line 12. Same with Perl 5.25.7.

I'm not sure this is the same as https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=97468 as this isn't related to Test::Builder or anything else.

It is the same issue. Test::Builder was merely one place where it was showing up in the wild. The key bit is this: Show quoted text

It is still unsolved, and presumed to be unsolvable.

Shouldn't the documentation be updated, then? :-)
