This is a bug report for perl from,
generated with the help of perlbug 1.39 running under perl 5.10.1.

This bug is probably known and fixed.  I appologize in advance
that I don't really know where to check for that.  I did flip
through some git commits and perl deltas trying to decide if the
bug was really known or incidentally fixed while acheiving other
goals.  In any case, it doesn't apply to more modern perls, but
5.10.x seems to be deployed everywhere so it is perhaps worth
pointing out.


eval { ("3"."x"x25) =~ m/(\d+)(??{ _noexist($^N) })/; 1 }

    # the sagfault will occur in whatever happens to be the next op

    or warn $@; # SIGSEGV in Perl_pp_warn() or comment line for
    ;print "here\n"; # SIGSEGV in Perl_do_print() instead

# 5.6.1  seems unaffected
# 5.8.1  seems to work but complains: panic: pad_free curpad. after "here"
# 5.10.1 where I noticed this (ubuntu 10.04)
# 5.12   seems fine
# 5.13   also fine
