in reply to what would you like to see in perl5.12?

This reminded of another one that I've wanted on several occasions, and seen come up here a few times also.

  • A vec that can manipulate any number of bits (at least up to the machine native ulong size), at any offset.

    So, vec( $bits, 30, 5 ) = 31; would do the right thing.

Examine what is said, not who speaks -- Silence betokens consent -- Love the truth but pardon error.
"Science is about questioning the status quo. Questioning authority".
In the absence of evidence, opinion is indistinguishable from prejudice.
