DAVEM TPF Grant#2 october / November 2019 report
Message ID:
(This report covers 2 months)

I eliminated new compiler warnings around perl's OS-level signal handler
functions by heavily reworking the mechanisms for declaring those
functions and their types and whether they accept 1 or 3 args.

I also did some investigation into why a multiply op becomes slower at
floating-point arithmetic once it's ever returned an integer value. 
I hope to  fix this soon.  See

Finally, I tweaked some of Memoize's test script which were
time-sensitive and caused occasional smoke failures.

     25:36 fix 3 arg signal handler
      4:31 fix smoke failures
      3:00 investigate unnecessary upgrade to SVt_PVNV
      5:13 reduce smoke noise
     38:20 TOTAL (HH::MM)

In economics, the exam questions are the same every year.
They just change the answers.
