[PATCH] vstrings Phase 1: First, do no harm!
Message ID:
After many 'duh' moments, I have successfully extracted the vstring
creation code from scan_num.  I am not entirely happy with the patch,
but bleadperl passes all test with it in, so at least I have not done
anything bad.  I decided after all to leave the function (now called
S_new_vstring) in toke.c.

Please criticize this mercilessly and include patches if you don't like
what I did.  ;~)

The next step is to make UNIVERSAL::VERSION use this code.

John Peacock

p.s. patch attached because I don't trust Nutscape to include it right
