  • A patch against 5.6.1 would be nice (WINK WINK NUDGE NUDGE)
    • What for? I thought 5.6.2 is going to be "no new features just compiles on modern systems" release. Or am I wrong?

      • Since you've already backported it to 5.6.x, I'm tempted to put in back. -- I've already upgraded DB_File (this was needed to allow it to compile with modern Berkeley DBs) and I'm tempted to upgrade Makemaker (and a few other ones).
        • Ok. When I'll release 2.121 (next week if I will not get new bug reports) I'll send patches for both bleadperl and for 5.6.x.

          Hmm, I'm just realized there is minor problem with my port if it is going to be included in 5.6.2. When doing the backport I used Devel::PPPort. As on blead perl #include ppport.h is effectively noop all core modules which use Devel::PPPort has

          #ifdef _NOT_CORE
          # include "ppport.h"

          to avoid including redunant copies of ppport.h in the code. But it is not going to work on 5.6.x

          • Not sure how to report a bug report, but,

            when trying to compile and install version 2.121 I get an error that UTF8_ALLOW_ANY is undefined.

            Doing a search I tried (as a guess that might work)
            #define UTF8_ALLOW_ANY 0x00FF

            However, I get another error now.
