Re: [ID 19991118.010] Core dump on running perl in debug mode

The latest stable version of perl is 5.005_03 - please try your
program under that version.

:Hi. The following program leads to a core dump.
:#!/usr/sbin/perl -w
:%functions = ();
:foreach $file (@ARGV) {
:  (open(FILE, $file)) || (die "Can't open $file for reading: $!; stopped");

I was unable to reproduce your problem with a 5.005_02 perl here,
when I tried throwing some random C source files at it. However I
have no idea what the program is trying to do or what style of data
it expects, and there was no output from the program when I tried
running it.

If your problem persists under 5.005_03, please a) reduce the test
case so that both code and data are as small as possible and b)
provide the necessary data as well as the code in your bug report.
