Here's a chance to show off your extensive knowledge of perl arcana and your vast experience debugging barbarous code. The task for this hole is simply to segfault the latest stable version of Perl (v5.6.1) in the fewest number of characters, given the following rules:
- Your code must segfault at least one platform.
- There's a two stroke penalty for every platform that doesn't segfault.
- NO -u or dump permitted.
- NO fork bombs or other resource-depleting methods.
- Use of any feature marked "experimental" in the perl docs gets a 5 stroke handicap. Sorry, japhy ;)
Bring the pain!
