This is a bug report for perl from david.freedman@uk.clara.net,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.35 running under perl v5.8.8.


-----------------------------------------------------------------

Switch.pm seems to have a parse problem.

The following test case illustrates this:

perl -MSwitch -e '$foo = (1/2); switch($s) { case /foo/ { print } }'

If you change the divide operation to another type of operation (+ for instance) the problem no longer manifests,
also, if you change the case from pattern matching to another type of matching the problem no longer manifests.

The source parser being used in Switch seems to hook on the divisor operator which is outside of its scope.

This seems to have been present in Switch.pm for some time.
