in thread Perl stops reading __DATA__ when meeting SUB character on Windows

Perl should not have reached the ^Z while reading the source code. It should have found __DATA__ first.

So how big of a buffer do you suppose is being used when Perl is reading from a file looking for "__DATA__"?

    Are you saying it's ok for binmode(DATA, ...) only to take effect partway through the data? No, that's a bug.

    It doesn't matter how big the buffer is. It could be big enough to contain the entire file. The parser can't go changing bytes later in the file unless it knows it's safe to do so or it has a means of restoring them. Otherwise, it breaks DATA.

      I give up, since you aren't going to pay enough attention to even follow along effectively.

        binmode now *does* work properly, whatever size the buffer is. You must think it very odd that p5p was able to fix this bug! How is it that I'm the one who's not following???
