Last night luqui discovered that
is suddenly broken, right after his commit that enables user-defined lexical operators. After some analysis, he concluded that a stray
&infix:<~~> exported from Set.pm is the culprit, because
when constructs was coded to use whichever smartmatch operator is in scope.
So, in addition to fixing
when to use
&*infix:<~~> explicitly, luqui also added a warning for modules trying to export an operators: "You probably don't want to export an operator name; instead
define a new variant on the new operator (eg. multi sub *infix:<+>)". He then followed this advice and converted
Set.pm to define new multi variants to builtin operators, instead of exporting them.
fglock added more builting methods to the perl5 runtime, such as
.does. He also hacked in proper support for the
1... and even
@a = (1..Inf) xx Inf all works as expected.
Continuing his Perl Best Practices efforts, dduncan rearranged Locale::KeyedText so that all POD sections are below the code, and copyrights moved toward the end.
rafl did lots of work to get Pugs properly integrated with Debian, including smokeserv support, more installed manpages, and environment knobs to control build optimisation, test targets, and whether to report smoke results or not.
See you tomorrow!
