This is a bug report for perl from pfusik@op.pl,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.7.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

No characters should be allowed in a subroutine prototype
after an '@' (but not '\@'). This is because no arguments
can be effectively passed to a subroutine after an array argument.

I insist on an error, but a warning would be better than nothing.
