Try it and see! I'm serious. It'll be an interesting experiment. BTW The modules themselves might be -w clean, but the testing suite certainly isn't! > >Hmm, its damned silly that you can't give two modules on the command > >line. > > ??? > > $ perl -Mwarnings -Mstrict -le 'print keys %INC' > Exporter.pmCarp.pmstrict.pmwarnings.pm Sorry, misspoke. That works. This does not: PERL5OPT='-Mwarnings -Mstrict' perl -wle 'print keys %INC' unkown warnings category '-Mstrict' at -e line 0 BEGIN failed--compilation aborted. It seems to be parsing that as: C<use warnings '-Mstrict'>. IMHO this is a bug.
