DAVEM TPF Grant#2 Oct 2020 report
Message ID:
I managed to do some perl-related work last month!

This mainly consisted in tracking down a (harmless as it turned out)
off-by-one error in Cwd.xs, which I thought was being flagged up by
valgrind. As it turned out, the valgrind report was a false positive caused
by a bug in valgrind when perl is built with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE, and I
found the Cwd bug by manual code inspection of the area complained about
by valgrind!

      4:35 add some magic free vtable methods for faster freeing
     15:59 investigate ASan failure in t/op/coreamp.t
      2:30 process p5p mailbox
     23:04 TOTAL (HH::MM)

O Unicef Clearasil!
Gibberish and Drivel!
