I've all but given up on trying to show parts of my code ... most of my code is tied in with library functions and problems I find are never in simple 1 liners, but buried amongst 2000 other lines of code. Trying to reproduce it in a short example invariably removes the ability to reproduce the bug.
I've submitted programs that caused the perl compiler to dump core. They were closed out because they were too difficult for the developers to figure out. Note: all of my programs were written in pure perl. It shouldn't be possible for them to cause perl to core dump, any more than it should be possible for a normal user program to cause the OS kernel to panic and blue-screen(or dump core)...
Nevertheless, even though clearly a bug was demonstrated that if perl was an OS would be defined as a Denial of Service, such bugs are routinely ignored as it's assumed the user has done something strange -- ignoring the fact that nothing the user in pure perl as a normal user should be able to corrupt the interpreter to the point it dumps core.
I'm more than happy to share code... AND have done so in the past. But I didn't sufficiently deconstruct my program into an artificial and thereby, unrelated test case and got chastised for it by 'you'...#985099.
So it sorta puts me off wanting to share code when I get caustic replies for not doing it in the way someone finds acceptable. You have to understand, I listen to your feedback. If you want me to share more code, you'd have to stop chastising me for the code I submit. I know it's demanding of me, but your tone was spiteful and you even got several votes indicating your spiteful tone to put me down was appreciated. That doesn't come off as a very friendly helping community IMO...but I know my opinion doesn't count for much.
