in thread Hash order randomization is coming, are you ready?

As I understand it, any packages broken by this change are not relying on undocumented behaviour; they're relying on behaviour which is documented as being unreliable.

perl -E'sub Monkey::do{say$_,for@_,do{($monkey=[caller(0)]->[3])=~s{::}{ }and$monkey}}"Monkey say"->Monkey::do'

    packages broken by this change are not relying on undocumented behaviour; they're relying on behaviour which is documented as being unreliable.

    Either way; broke is broke. No one is suggesting that the change shouldn't be implemented, but is it unreasonable to want to know what the supposed benefits are intended?


    With the rise and rise of 'Social' network sites: 'Computers are making people easier to use everyday'
    Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.

    In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
