Subject: [PATCHES] patches for VAX (netbsd-vax)
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 258b
The VAX floating point has no inf/nan. The attached patches fix Scalar-List-Utils in netbsd-vax (the Perl 5.26 is expected to support netbsd-vax). (The subname.t is still crashing (hard, not the test, but Perl), but that seems not to be Infinity-related.)

It would be good if the patches/pull requests submitted for this RT were merged and a new CPAN release issued. These revisions were merged into perl5-blead on or about Nov 5 of this year. ##### commit aa3ecafd01033b5ee5566f754a882d417a39e0ad Author: Jarkko Hietaniemi <jhi@iki.fi> AuthorDate: Sat Nov 5 14:10:56 2016 Commit: Jarkko Hietaniemi <jhi@iki.fi> CommitDate: Sat Nov 5 14:12:39 2016 netbsd-vax: no infinity The tests were not failing, but being a bit noisy. ##### The fact that the distro in blead diverged from CPAN meant that in blead we had to make CUSTOMIZED entries for this distribution in Porting/Maintainers.pl. When I went to merge into perl5-blead the changes for https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=119169 (t/tainted.t problems), I had to perform surgery on some of the files and increment the version number to 1.47_01. The results of that surgery can be found in this branch: ##### smoke-me/jkeenan/scalar-list-utils-rectify ##### Thank you very much. Jim Keenan

I've removed these customisations from the blead distribution, as having diverging distributions was too hard. Presumably they'll re-appear in blead once they've been merged upstream.
