in thread Vulnerabilities when editing untrusted code... (Komodo)

Every perl editor which tries to check for compile time errors and warnings...

Which is one reason I don't use such editors. It's like sticking your finger in a power socket to check if it's live.


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.

[pryrt]: 1nickt, sprintf "%.16e", $v will always give enough precision to see 1 ULP (the smallest fractional part) of a standard 64bit Perl NV*
[pryrt]: (*: for systems where $Config{nvsize}==8 )
[pryrt]: Thus, that's "enough precision" to tell the difference between 1.0 and 1.0+1ULP
[pryrt]: But in what circumstance does your problem arise? When, in Perl, does the integer 1 not work identically to the floating-point NV 1.0000000000000000 e0?
