Unfortunately, patch applied against 5.17.4 gave the following test errors.

../cpan/CGI/t/tmpdir.t (Wstat +: 0 Tests: 9 Failed: 0) TODO passed: 3-9 ../ext/File-Glob/t/basic.t (Wstat +: 768 Test s: 49 Failed: 3) Failed tests: 19, 21-22 Non-zero exit status: 3 Files=2336, Tests=548419, 725 wallclock secs (50.53 usr 6.81 sys + 40 +1.23 cusr 34.93 csys = 493.50 CPU) Result: FAIL

Perhaps I applied it incorrectly - will check.

    It's a bad patch. I'm not sure why I thought it passed with bleadperl (and I knew it didn't look right), but for whatever reason, it's a bad patch.

    I'm pretty sure the patch was applied correctly to 5.17.4. I went back to stock 5.17.4 and all tests pass. With the patch the tests above fail.

[ambrus]: This is different from MS Word, which was already a good editor in the pre-unicode days (in word for windows versions 2 and 6, which ran on windows 3 but also on windows 95), only it wasn't trying to solve the task of writing maths papers back then.
[Discipulus]: ah ok, sounds reasonable; with no fear: Perl all life long
[ambrus]: Mind you, LaTeX is currently still useful for writing math paper or snippet content without styling in such a way that the

[ambrus]: which is sort of a drawback compared to the ages of typewritten manuscripts representing content only to which the typesetter applies formatting, but that process required much more manual labor.
[ambrus]: If you want to typeset a manuscript, you can still do much less work then in the manual typesetting ages and get good formatting.
