perl@17303 snapshot
Message ID:
In the march toward the next 5.8.0 release candidate, there is another 
snapshot today, details below.  More testing with your favorite 
configurations and extensions is encouraged. As you can see from Jarkko's 
to-do list, there are some remaining issues with D_FLOAT.  Other remaining 
issues I'm aware of are:

-  openpid.t hangs on pre-6.0 VAX systems

-  abs2rel() is not completely reversible when the default directory 
   contains a concealed device name

Patches welcome.
