If you can't or won't spend time in fixing compline/d_gconvert.U ...

If I can fix it, then I will undertake to do so.
At the moment, however, I have no idea how d_gconvert.U fits into "the scheme of things".
AFAICS, it's not part of the perl source.

... but I am always scared of interpolation when requiring quotes

I bothers me a bit, too. Although the configure option that I used seems to have done the trick, it wasn't exactly noiseless:

Of course, I probably should at least run make test before I start getting too excited about how successful it has been ;-)

Cheers,
Rob

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
