I bet that the your warning was buried in a blizzard of warnings about conversions that you did intend. In Perl, there is almost no penalty for recompiling after fixing a few obvious errors. I have come to expect that some of the remaining ones will disappear.

    No. That's the funny thing: There are so many possible conversions that would be done "out of the box". From / to binary, decimal, float, character: no warnings AFAIR. Whenever this "done by subroutine call" warning appeared, something was badly wrong.
