  • I'm runnung 64 bit perl 5.8.x .. I'm also running 5.10 on client's production servers so need to install it anyway I suppose

    @JAPH = qw(Hacker Perl Another Just);
    print reverse @JAPH;
    • The bug is that I documented support for Q< and Q> to dump little- and big-endian 64-bit values. But the < and > suffixes only work in 5.10.0+. The easy fix, of course, would have been to fix the doco, but instead, I spent my lunchtime replacing pack() so the code now supports Q even on 32-bit perl, and supports < and > on Ye Olde Perle. Far more fun!
