Subject: PERL_FUTURE_DEBUG and perl 5.14.x
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 763b
This isn't really an issue in Future.pm - it's a Perl bug which Carp.pm triggers: https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=72467 however due to the use of Carp message formatting, it means it's quite easy to run into messages like panic: attempt to copy freed scalar 183d588 to 1854078 when PERL_FUTURE_DEBUG=1. Not really sure what to suggest - later versions of perl don't seem to be as susceptible to this issue, although https://rt.perl.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=42166 is still open. There's a patch in the Carp.pm ticket which avoids the error (haven't checked to see if it's a good workaround), if it's somehow possible to use the same approach in Future.pm that might make debugging a bit easier on older versions of perl? cheers, Tom
