RE: "require" change of behavior in 5.16 or slightly before?
Message ID:
I assume this is why perl is in now not modern anymore:

When I had similar problems (rt ticket #127512), perl-porters refused to accept them, accusing me (user) to these problems

While you think that "modernizing" perl is stuffing "use strict; use warnings;" every where - sane people would think about introducing some modern concepts like "WebPerl"
However the further we go - the harder to get with "webperl" because of dependencies forest.

Yet, now mails are filtered out

Congratulations: you win your own exclusive echo chamber! 😊

I assume this a duplicate of your email from 19th Feb and can be ignored.
