[perl #33156] perlapi.pod and the Perl_ prefix
Message ID:
Working off of Nick's original report...

In embed.h:

#define newSVpvf                Perl_newSVpvf


#  define newSVpvf              Perl_newSVpvf_nocontext

So it seems that newSVpvf is (almost) always defined (except under PERL_NO_SHORT_NAMES, which seems to be designed not to define it). Is it part of the API now, or should perldoc perlapi still be fixed to call it Perl_newSVpvf?
