[ID 20001029.008] perl binary segfaults on following code
Message ID:

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

the following code crashes my perl with a segfault
use foo;

sub foo
    sub ( $Self ) = @_;
    my $Filename = "$Self->{'Name'} $Self->{'Folder'}";

the obvious bug here is the typo of 'my' with 'sub'.. I fixed this and it 
stopped segfaulting, but it seems like it's probably still a bug..

The backtrace from the non-debug binary is:
#0  0x807741e in Perl_pad_free ()
#1  0x80777c7 in S_op_clear ()
#2  0x8077644 in Perl_op_free ()
#3  0x807760b in Perl_op_free ()
#4  0x807760b in Perl_op_free ()
#5  0x807e4ef in Perl_newATTRSUB ()

#10 0x805c378 in S_call_body ()
#11 0x805c11f in Perl_call_sv ()
#12 0x805ec99 in S_call_list_body ()
#13 0x805e967 in Perl_call_list ()
#14 0x807ea59 in Perl_newATTRSUB ()
#15 0x807b7a4 in Perl_utilize ()
#16 0x80753f8 in Perl_yyparse ()
#17 0x805b5b6 in S_parse_body ()
#18 0x805abc7 in perl_parse ()
#19 0x8058f7d in main ()

I don't know if that's helpful at all or not.. 

I'm curious as to just what the bug process is for PERL, I'm a professional 
C/C++ developer and would love to get a hand in on this in some (small) way,
unless I'd just be mucking things up.  

I'm not sure my e-mail got set up properly.. it's just, not (my machine), so please, any response, send to 

Thank you (whoever may be reading this),
Zac Hansen
