DAVEM TPF bug-grant report #167
Message ID:
In the latter part of this week I started work on finally eliminating
global state from the regex engine (i.e. the various fields within
PL_reg_state). In a private branch on my desktop, I have reduced the
number of fields from 17 to 7 so far.

(Note that the ticket I'm accounting this against is technically already
fixed, but this work provides a more general fix).

Any [programming] language that doesn't occasionally surprise the
novice will pay for it by continually surprising the expert.
