This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.


I found a bug on (v1.05). This related to the "parenthesis"  
category, and Perl builtin function "open". Under Perl 5.6 or later,  
"open" can have 3 arguments, and the first one can be a lexical variable.  
If other two arguments are also lexical variables (not literal), produce alerts wrongly:

     Parentheses missing around "my" list at line 10.

If at least one variable is literal, warning does not occur. Predeclared  
filehandle or "no warnings qw( parenthesis )" dismissed warnings. Below is  


     use 5.006;
     use strict;
     use warnings;

     my $mode = '<';
     my $file = 'file';

     open my $fh, $mode, $file;    # not ok
     open my $fh, '<', $file;      # ok
     open my $fh, $mode, 'file';   # ok

     my $fh;
     open $fh, $mode, $file;       # ok

     no warnings qw( parenthesis );
     open my $fh, $mode, $file;    # ok
