[ID 20000329.080] quad printing does not work as documented
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from joseph@dixie.cscaper.com,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.28 running under perl v5.6.0.

from perlfunc:
               If Perl understands "quads" (64-bit integers)
               (this requires either that the platform natively
               support quads or that Perl be specifically
               compiled to support quads), the characters

                       d u o x X b i D U O

               print quads, and they may optionally be preceded
               ^^^^^^^^^^^
               by

                       ll L q

               For example

                       %lld %16LX %qo

So, what does "print quads" mean?  Here's two theories:

Hypothesis 1: Prints the correct value of quads.
Hypothesis 2: Prints the incorrect value of quads.

On my machine it turns out to be Hypothesis 2:

/usr/local/devel/perl-longlong/bin/perl -e '$foo = 5000000000; \
                     printf "w/o: %d  w: %lld\n", $foo, $foo'
w/o: 705032704  w: 5000000000
