  • NUL bytes are perfectly legal inside Perl programs. The core uses them in a couple of places when creating code snippets to pass back to the interpreter, particularly as the quote character for q, as it's the only character that a C string can't contain. (Search for the string %c%s%c in perl.c [activestate.com])

  • This may surprise you, but your use.perl journal is not the CPAN.pm bug tracker. Andreas is unlikely to ever see this. It is here [cpan.org] or you can send mail [mailto].

    Report early, report often.
    • It makes a great place to discuss things, though, and find out if they are really bugs or not.
