How doable would it be to give a warning for "const" padsv > anon subs, and just have constant.pm turn off the warning? Technically very easy. I guess we now renew that thorny old argument about adding new deprecation warnings to maintenance releases, and lesser of two evils etc etc. Lets see: Anonymous subroutine interpreted as constant sub generator at line 1 or Lexical variable $foo treated as a constant in anonymous sub at line 1 or This closure - I don't think it means what you think it means at line 1 Presumably with perldiag filling in the gory details. -- "Emacs isn't a bad OS once you get used to it.
