in reply to Builtin functions defaulting to $_

Actually, just yesterday there was a new addition to the list, readpipe.

Change 30747 by rgs@benny on 2007/03/24 16:46:02 Make readpipe default to $_

Of course, you'll need to wait a bit for Perl 5.10 before you can use it.

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
