There is a difference betwen:

class A::B::C {

    f()

    x

}

and

class "A::B::C" {

    f()

    x

}

I want to use "::" without creating any packages at all. In Perl "::" doesn't represent packages.

Yes, you are right : it's a bug.

As temporary workaroud, you can use:

class "A::B::C" as A_B_C {
    f()
    x
}

 

The parser code need some serious refactor here.

I think also we may remove the feature that automatically creates package when class names have dot (.) or :: in their declaration. Not sure that it is a really good/usefull feature

Is it possible to remove it? I created some UMLs two weeks ago and they show strange behavior now :)
