  • When you're saying "perl -c", you are compiling and running a package without a surrounding require, and then "use Pluto" works alright.

    Compare that with the output of "perl -c -e 'use Pippo'". It seems more well behaved (and does not emit warnings).

    $ perl -c -e 'use Pippo'
    $VAR1 = {
              'Pippo' => {
                           '' => ''

    • Actually, that's quite cute, though you don't need the -c anymore (it checks the syntax of the expression "use Pippo"). And it does clarify the difference between running a file and useing it.

      But it would be nice to be able to "perl -c" the file directly (as it's burned into my finger memory as well as my Vim configuration).

      Oh, I forgot to post the workaround I use:

      package Pippo;
      BEGIN { $INC{''} = $0}
