$ cat zero.c #include <stdio.h> int main() { printf("0 ** 0 == %d\n", 0 ^ 0); } $ ./zero 0 ** 0 == 0

Test your modules with bleadperl!

  rsync -avz rsync:// .
  ./Configure -des -Dusedevel -Dprefix=/path/to/test/perl
  make test
  make install

Now, please test you modules! If you have test failures that don't happen with Perl 5.8.8, send a simplified test case to

    Use math
    /* gcc -o zero zero.c -lm */ #include <stdio.h> #include <math.h> int main() { int i = 0; int j = 0; int k; k = pow(i,j); printf("%d\n",k); }
    Output: 1

    printf("0 ** 0 == %d\n", 0 ^ 0);
    That's the xor operator.
