Hi!

Given two coderefs. Is there an (elegant) way to compare the code they're pointing to?

No, I don't need any fancy stuff like solving the halting problem. ;-) I do not even need to know if the code is equivalent. It would be completely sufficient if these

my $cr1 = sub { $foo = $bar * $baz; } my $cr2 = sub { $foo = $bar * $baz; }

Would be considered "same". Ideally with the whitespaces being irrelevant. All mutations, invariants etc. can safely be considered 'different'. i.e.

my $cr3 = sub { $mul = $op1 * $op2; } my $cr4 = sub { $foo = $baz * $bar; }

To sum up: It would be sufficient to have a function that - for two given coderefs (pointing to different addresses) - would just return "identic" if they'd be the same list of opcodes.

Howto? B:: something?

Thank you for your guidance.

Bye
