DAVEM TPF Grant#2 April 2017 report
Message ID:

The main things I did last month were:

* Fixd require's "Can't locate" error message so that it only mentions
  @INC if @INC was actually searched, and only gives the "you may need to
  install" hint if the filename maps to a valid module name.

* fixed up the usage of 'do' in core and made tests run without '.' in
  @INC.  It turns out that all core tests were being run with '.' in @INC
  even when that was no longer set by default by the perl interpreter. I
  removed that, and then fixed up the issues it revealed.

* I made a start on a proof-of-concept branch which stores short strings
  directly in the body of an SV.
