This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.22.1.

[Please describe your issue here]

Sometimes Perl code will appear to compile when there are git conflict
markers like <<<<<<< in the file.  Or sometimes it gives an error but
one that doesn't make it clear what the problem really is.

I suggest adding explict detection of <<<<<<< ======= >>>>>>> as
tokens and making them give an immediate error which stops parsing.
As usual, this would not catch 100% of all such errors (the conflict
markers might be inside a here-document, and so on) but it would
be a great help nonetheless.

For C and C++ programs, the latest gcc now reports
   test.c:3:1: error: version control conflict marker in file
It would be great for perl's error reporting to be as good as C.
