Maintaining the Perl 5 Core (Dave Mitchell): Grant Report for Nov 2017

No Comments

This is a monthly report by Dave Mitchell on his grant under Perl 5 Core Maintenance Fund. We thank the TPF sponsors to make this grant possible.

I spent last month mainly:

* Fixing some issues thrown up by the new OP_MULTICONCAT optimisation;

* Fixing some regressions in deparse testing: 't/TEST -deparse' feeds every
  test suite script through the deparser before trying to run it; about 6
  scripts that formerly passed had started failing. I fixed all these, and
  removed another 6 or so scripts from the 'expected to fail' exclusion
  list.
