DAVEM TPF Grant#3 May 2022 report
Message ID:
This is my monthly report for May on work done covered by my TPF perl core
maintenance grant.

The main things I did were to fix an obscure panic when an eval is the
last statement in a regex code block, e.g.

    /....(?{...; eval { ... }; }) .../

And, as a side-effect of working on that, I also improved the docs
covering how perl handles exceptions internally.

(Both these bits of work are currently in a branch but not yet merged.)

Other than that, I ended up having my gall bladder removed late May, the
pre- and post- effects of which have reduced the hours I have spent on
perl somewhat recently - mostly just trying to keep up to date with my p5p
mailbox and not doing much "real" work.

      5:16 GH #19680 panic: restartop in perl_run
      5:01 improve docs for internal exception handling (JMPENV etc)
      5:26 process p5p mailbox
      0:32 refactor regen/
     16:15 TOTAL (HH::MM)

It's not that I'm afraid to die, I just don't want to be there when it
