Defined, But Never Called

[ #9098 ]
More code review rebop: During this week's code review meeting we spent 15 minutes raking a poorly-coded subroutine through the coals, only to discover that it was never called in the CGI!

So I was wondering one might test for that...do I need to compile perl with debugging enabled?

This is a different issue than detecting code that is never reached or isn't reached in the normal functioning of the CGI. The subroutine is simply never called anywhere.

So I need to get a list of all the subroutines and then somehow look at byte-code-execution tree whatnot and see there's no entry point. [here the author waves hands frantically]. I have no idea what I'm talking about :(
