How many other users are affected by your change?

Everyone that's going to use the next version of perl whether as a user, developer, or admin. Oh wait, you meant the change that's local that hasn't roundtripped through p5p? I haven't found reason to patch a core module on the production systems but it wouldn't be forbidden if there weren't some better alternative like a newer, fixed version. We're probably in agreement that it'd be really far down on the list of things to try when working around a problem.

[BarApp]: I can not use modules. I gain temporary access and still can not use modules.
[Cosmic37]: ta erix - this szabo geezer is pretty cool methinks and he writes about undef but I cannot see instructions for redefining the record separator after having undefined it
[Corion]: $/ = "wahtever";
[Corion]: (it's a magic variable)
[karlgoethebier]: BarApp: whoami
[Cosmic37]: ok fankyou - I was wondering about that but thought there might be a redefine command or something; peachy
[Lotus1]: Cosmic37 if you undef $/ in a local context to a block it won't affect the global version after the block finishes
[Lotus1]: or you can just do local $/ in a block
