Subject: Documentation under DIAGNOSTICS appears to be out of date
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 610b
The following appears to be out of date: ---- NAME is only available with the XS version of Scalar::Util Scalar::Util contains both perl and C implementations of many of its functions so that those without access to a C compiler may still use it. However some of the functions are only available when a C compiler was available to compile the XS version of the extension. At present that list is: weaken, isweak, dualvar, isvstring, set_prototype ---- As far as I can tell the module doesn't offer any non-XS versions of anything, and the above diagnostic does not seem to appear in the current source code.

Yeah; that's basically all lies currently. :) Probably needs some fixing up -- Paul Evans
