DAVEM TPF bug-grant report #132
Message ID:
This week I continued work on making the regex engine safe in the presence
of non-\0-terminated strings. This is so far visible in a series of
commits I've pushed which eliminates PL_reginput from the regex engine.
S_regmatch() used to use both this interpreter variable and a local var,
locinput, in an unnecessarily complex ballet to track the current match
position. After the change it just uses locinput, and the t/re/*.t tests
run about 0.5% faster (which is probably just noise, but hey, it sounds

Further to that, I have the not-needing-null code written, but it's
currently breaking tests, so needs further work.
