Anyway, Ive come to the conclusion that (and 'a data structure' means any arbitrary data structure)
Also in the course of developing Data::BFDump I have discovered bugs in
This accounts for some of the most well known and highly regarded authors in Perldom. And you know what? Of the bugs I have reported NONE of the authors has responded. Not so much of a peep. Even on the perl5porters list I got only one reply. Frankly the impression I get of that place is that if you cant write C/C++ code in your sleep then they wont even speak to you. A pretty disappointing reaction considering the kind of community that Ive come to love at places like Perlmonks.
Dont get me wrong I appeciate that the perl porters work hard and do a good job. I appreciate that many of the authors above are very busy people with lots on their plate. But a lousy email saying 'ACK' to a bug report really doesnt seem like that much to ask. Hell at least I went out of my way to find and inform them of the bug.
