In a script of mine, I've used
to split input lines consisting of word lists like
aaa bbb cc
aa, bb, cc
Unfortunately, this now breaks running on RH8.0 (perl 5.8.0), producing a "Split loop" error.
I have tracked the error to be provoked with any regexp containing character classes () (and using it with split).
I am somewhat baffled, but if I am doing something wrong, please let me know...
PS: I have a workaround, but I am more interested in why the split is in err...!
