in reply to One piece of code, two mysteries! (UPDATED.)

I don’t have any answers, but perhaps the following will shed some light?

12:08 >perl -v This is perl 5, version 14, subversion 2 (v5.14.2) built for MSWin32-x +86-multi-thread ... 12:08 >perl 318_SoPW.pl 1 2 Use of uninitialized value in print at 318_SoPW.pl line 27. Use of uninitialized value in print at 318_SoPW.pl line 27. 1 2 3 Use of uninitialized value in print at 318_SoPW.pl line 27. Use of uninitialized value in print at 318_SoPW.pl line 27. Use of uninitialized value in print at 318_SoPW.pl line 27. 1 2 3 1 2 3 12:08 >

but

12:11 >perl -v This is perl 5, version 16, subversion 0 (v5.16.0) built for MSWin32-x +86-multi-thread-64int (with 1 registered patch, see perl -V for more detail) ... 12:11 >perl 318_SoPW.pl 1 2 1 2 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 1 2 3 12:11 >

In neither case do I get a 4 in the output, as you do. Looks like there’s a Perl bug somewhere...

Update 1: Running on Vista 32-bit.

Update 2: With the local $_ line commented out, I get the following output (same for both perl versions):

17:59 >perl 318_SoPW.pl Thread 1 terminated abnormally: Modification of a read-only value atte +mpted at 318_SoPW.pl line 15. Thread 2 terminated abnormally: Modification of a read-only value atte +mpted at 318_SoPW.pl line 15. 18:00 >

    Interesting, thank you.

    I'd tried it on a mix of 32 & 64 bit Perl's ranging from 5.8.9 through 2x 5.10's, 2x 5.12's, 3x 5.14s with the same results. Amazing how I've only just encountered it, shortly after its been fixed.

    Did you try commenting the local $_ line?
