    In accordance with the terms of my grant from TPF this is the monthly report for my work on improving Devel::Cover covering May 2013. In May Perl 5.18.0 was released. 5.18.0 introduced a new padrange operator and I had failed to note the full implications for Devel::Cover. So, a couple of days after 5.18.0 was released I released Devel::Cover 1.03 which works correctly with the new operator, and contains a

Most of these funds are used as part of our excellent programmes to improve Perl via direct sponsorship of people such
