Maintaining the Perl 5 Core: Report for Month 11

No Comments

The main things I worked on this month were:

  • making the op_private OP flags and data be auto-generated from a single consistent source. Its actually complete now, although wasn't at the end of last month, which is the period this report covers.
  • some more work on my OP_MULTIDEREF optimisation. The basic optimisation works, but it still needs work on being handled by B::* and by the use of uninitialised value" warning code, and tests need adding.
  • reviewing, discussing and applying Syber's method call optimisation work
