(This report covers 2 months) I eliminated new compiler warnings around perl's OS-level signal handler functions by heavily reworking the mechanisms for declaring those functions and their types and whether they accept 1 or 3 args. I also did some investigation into why a multiply op becomes slower at floating-point arithmetic once it's ever returned an integer value. I hope to fix this soon. See https://www.perlmonks.org/?node_id=11109404 Finally, I tweaked some of Memoize's test script which were time-sensitive and caused occasional smoke failures.
