RE: [perl #121073] IO::Compress COW problems
Message ID:
Sorry for the delay in applying this patch. I tried it over the  holidays last month, but it broke with Perl 5.6.* - looked like a ppport issue (I think).  Been meaning to look at it again.

If 5.20 is imminent I'll see if I can get a chance to look at it this week.

I have submitted a patch to <>.
We really ought to get a new release integrated into bleadperl before 5.20 ships. We
can’t make copy-on-write more prevalent while core modules fail to handle it.
