( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??
For complete picture I want to share findings that this warning does appear if (1) right side of an assignment '=' operator contains a "constant" (i.e. number, string), except 'undef'; And the warning does not appear if (2) the left side of an assignment operator '=' is enclosed with parentheses or if it is an array. I think it is desired behavior. Of course if some coder have wanted to compare his array with a number (e.g. @_ == 5, i.e. if a number of elements of an array equals to 5) and he accidentally put one '=' instead of '==', warning won't appear; And example:
perl -wle '@_ = -1 .. 3; for( @_ ){ print $_; ( ) = 0 or last }'
-1 0 1 2 3
No warning.
Note that 'last' never executed because of: an assignment operator works as "list assignment operator" (because of parentheses on the left side of the '='), and an operator 'or' asked for scalar context. In scalar context list assignment operator returns a number of elements of the right side (i.e. one element: '0').

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 How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
