  • This seems to be a sibling-bug to:
    use warnings;
    $value = 42;
    print "$valu is the answer.\n";
    I think that for short programs, both bugs might be caught by use warnings; but in long programs, your bug is more likely to be undetected becase both names will be reused.

    I would call your bug something like "unintended discarded outputs." Which doesn't sound very high-falutin', but oh well.
