This is a bug report for perl from l.mai@web.de, generated with the help of perlbug 1.40 running under perl 5.26.0. ----------------------------------------------------------------- [Please describe your issue here] $ perl -we 'package A; sub f (x)' Illegal character in prototype for A::f : x at -e line 1. $ perl -we 'package A; sub f :prototype(x)' Illegal character in prototype for A::f : x at -e line 1. $ perl -we 'sub f (x)' Illegal character in prototype for main::f : x at -e line 1. $ perl -we 'sub f :prototype(x)' Illegal character in prototype for f : x at -e line 1. This warning includes the fully qualified name of the subroutine (A::f, main::f) unless the package is 'main' and the prototype was specified using the built-in ':prototype' attribute. Why is this last case inconsistent? [Please do not change anything below this line] ----------------------------------------------------------------- --- Flags: category=core severity=low --- Site configuration information for perl 5.26.0: Configured by mauke at Tue May 30 23:06:36 CEST 2017.

Because some nitwit did not think about the consequences of 2eaf799e. Now fixed in cbf837914d. -- Father Chrysostomos
