[ID 20010109.018] Functioning Functions

[ID 20010109.018] Functioning Functions
Message ID:

This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.26 running under perl 5.006.

[Please enter your report here]

Just FYI, the following code segfaults:

	perl -e 'sub abc{} abc x {}'

Seems I can't pass a named sub as a parameter to a function, but
an anonymous one will work (and compile) just fine:

	perl -e 'sub abc{} abc sub {}'


	perl -e 'sub abc{} abc *x = sub {}'

Which is about as close as I can get without Perl blowing a gasket.

[Please do not change anything below this line]
