Bug in 5.6.0 RC1?: no compilation errors displayed
Message ID:
This is a bug report for perl from
generated with the help of perlbug 1.27 running under perl v5.5.670.
[Please enter your report here]
<< This may be in a strange format. If so, I'm sorry. >>
If, during compilation,
a) the error limit is exceeded and
b) among the errors is one out of a certain set of errors,
then no error messages are shown except (e.g.): has too many errors.
   Compilation failed in require at ./ line 4.
(All such errors I've found so far seem to have in common that the diagnostic
in toke.c is coded as "yyerror(Perl_form(aTHX_ ...")
