DAVEM TPF bug-grant report #113
Message ID:
Spent the week intermittently continuing to work on the code-calling
aspect of /(?{})/.  I've managed to get it working with (an enhanced)
MULTICALL with all tests passing; although it needs more tests and work.

In particular, things like /(?{die/next/last/caller})/ no longer SEGV.

I took the Executive Decision that the only sane semantics for regex code
blocks were to treat them similarly to sort blocks, tie methods, %SIG
handlers etc, where a new stack is pushed, 'next', 'goto' etc can't
see anything external to that block, and 'return' returns from the code
block, not any enclosing sub.

Report for period 2012/04/30 to 2012/05/06 inclusive

More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path
leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction.
Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.
