in thread Exiting eval via next: is that so bad?

Please forgive necromancy.

In the case I just hit, I'm doing this:

CLIENT: while (!exitflag) { eval { # Various things that might throw exceptions if (blah blah) { next CLIENT; } }; if ($@) { # Exception handling } }

So, I'm not just exiting the eval, I'm exiting considerably more. AND I'm doing it by an explicit label, not implicitly, so I really shouldn't be confused about what I'm doing. I'd really prefer not to get this warning in the case when I'm using a loop label to exit a particular loop.

(The big while loop is handling client connects as they come in, the eval inside it is to prevent unexpected errors from killing the whole server; they just abort the one connection. This is test code, the full version will fork of course, once it can handle the simple case.)
