( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

If it were true, why then threaded and non-threaded perl give different results in \ $_[0] ?

I don't know why that code isn't reached for non-threaded Perls.

Even if it was, that's bad intention to me, and bad design. A bug, basically.

You're wrong to simply declare that it's a design flaw.

Three people in this thread and many of the core Perl5 developers (if not all) know that it's not self-evident that literals should create non-modifiable values.

You're wrong to simply declare that it's a bug.

It's only a bug if it doesn't behave as intended, and some of the core Perl5 developers have explicitly stated they believe literals should return modifiable values.

I was hoping you'd come around to expressing an opinion or making an argument, but all we got were empty declarations.

  • 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).
