in reply to Return values from package methods

Sounds like a bug that was fixed.

Magic is needed to implement the 'subroutines exitted using a means other than die() or return(), result with the last statement executed, in the context that the subroutine was called within.' Perhaps in 5.6, this magic was a little more lazy, and never explicitly set the return result to be an empty list in the case that a subroutine has no statement in it?

Perhaps it is unreasonable to expect a reliable result for a subroutine that does not implicitly or explicitly return a result? :-)

Cheers,
mark

[karlgoethebier]: perhaps i need a zerial?
[Corion]: marto: Heh - I think that's a nice contractual trap, "you will not use other gods/engines besides ours" ;)
[Corion]: But if the base intention was to have CIG as "co-developers" who (have to) contribute changes back to the mainline, it makes sense to have them use no other engine
[marto]: yes, I hear that development house has been on its last legs for a couple of years now
[Corion]: Is anybody aware of what makes Android Oreo better than Android Nougat? I'm not sure if the architectural changes (etc) are there already that make upgrading an Oreo-kernel phone to a newer Android userland (Lineage OS) version feasible
[Corion]: Yeah, CryTek got blindsided (or whatever) by Unity and Unreal Engine being zero cost, and the CryTek documentation being bad/nonexistent I think
[Corion]: "zero monetary cost", because of course, it's gratis only if your time has no value :)
[marto]: I used to keep up to date with my android ROMs, updating to the nightly every other day
[marto]: in my experience the jump in major releases has been painless, and performed better
