  • I haven't looked at this in any great detail, but couldn't there be a similar problem in the code that calculates the hash value? I mean isn't there some analogue to hash_val() inside parrot itself (presumably written in C) that needs to calculate hash values for other strings, and if the one in that file hashes \n as backslash and n, and the one in parrot does so as a literal \n wouldn't they get different values?
    • You're right. I hadn't thought of that, but fortunately nothing uses the hash value from the constant table yet. I had considered earlier today that it might be useless, removable data.
