From @vlbrown

When I run this (sample) code​:

  #!/usr/bin/perl -w

  $x = 'xyz';

  if ($x == '7') {
  print "yes\n";
  }

I get a warning​:

  Argument "xyz" isn't numeric in eq at foo.pl line 5.

Yes and No.

True, the argument isn't numeric... but that's not an 'eq' there at line 5,
it's a '==' which is precisely the point of the warning; if I were (correctly)
using eq, there wouldn't _be_ a warning! :-)

The message should say

  Argument "xyz" isn't numeric in == at foo.pl line 5.
