-Uuseperlio affecting ... prototype dumping?
Message ID:
Noticed this:
What it amount is that with -Uuseperlio this

	-MDevel::Peek -e 'print Dump(sub(){})'


    PROTOTYPE = "_"

but without -Uuseperlio it prints

    PROTOTYPE = ""

Since printf "%_" vs SVf dance is to be suspected, what should we do?
Tweak the dump.c code to print "" for an empty prototype even under
no perlio, or the test to allow for an optional "_"?
