TPF bug-grant report #71
Message ID:
Spent most of last week working on stuff not directly related to TPF-bug
fixing, but quite exciting nevertheless:

* made the peephole optimiser only recurse shallowly, so that perl doesn't
  crash when compiling a long piece of source code;

* reduced the executable size and test-suite execution time of a DEBUGGING
  perl by about 10%;

* paved the way for reclaiming a bit in SvFLAGS;

* made the logical ops fully short-circuit, so that for example
    ($false && $foo1 && $foo2 && $foo3 && $foo4)
  fails more quickly
The only TPF work I did was providing a stop-gap fix for the crashes that
occur when using lexical var declarations in re_evals, e.g.
    /(?{ my $lex })/
