I'm Andy Lester, and I like to test stuff. I also write for the Perl Journal, and do tech edits on books. Sometimes I write code, too.

New Text::Balanced removes $&

[ #31684 ]
Over in the land of Socialtext Open, we found that we were having big slowdowns because of $& somewhere in the code base. Turns out it was in Text::Balanced. I fired off mail to Damian and within half an hour he'd put out a new version that didn't use the evil variable.

If you don't know why $& is bad, see the docs for Devel::SawAmpersand. http://search.cpan.org/dist/Devel-SawAmpersand/
