in thread Perl 5 Optimizing Compiler, Part 4: LLVM Backend?

Not using PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT for all XS code in the last 10 years is a sin.

Right, its a sin not to posses secret knowledge -- PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT site:perldoc.perl.org

Then again, most CPAN authors don't care (I'm staring at you Win32:: namespace).

Right, because non-threaded perls are the bees-knees on win32, and PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT is reported to all these non-caring sharers of code ( PERL_NO_GET_CONTEXT site:rt.cpan.org, )

    So what you're saying is that its a sin to have a facility that has been fully documented in perlguts.pod since 5.6.0, 12 years ago?

    Dave.

      Fully documented?

      Calling this a sin and saying cpan authors (esp Win32) don't care, even if I insert the missing smiley, is rude balooney.

      Trying to turn around , my merely sarcastic reply, back at me is troll excrement.
