TPF bug-grant report #8
Message ID:
All my time this week was devoted to just one bug, the leak in the trie
runtime. I could probably have fixed this fairly simply in a way that
continued to require run-time allocation and freeing of memory, but I
thought I saw a way to eliminate the allocation completely and ran with
it.  As with all things perl-related it turned out to be harder than I
thought :-)
