Why is \c` deprecated?
Message ID:
It started warning in 5.14 or so, at which point I opposed the warn-
ing.  Ever since then I have simply suppressed it in my code, since I
think it is wrong.  Now it is a deprecation warning, and my code is
very noisy.

What do we gain by deprecating this behaviour that has been around
since perl 4?

This commit message for bfdc8cd3d5a is wrong to state that it was dep-
recated in 5.14.  It was not deprecated until bfdc8cd3d5a.
