I tried to parse the CPAN.pm which comes with perl 5.10.0 and PPI complained Error at line 3441, character 0 There's apparently a NUL byte, ie. "\0" there which ppi doesn't like. Two sample programs below. Perl seems to execute code with \0 ok, within whitespace at least. It might be good if ppi could read it too (even if you really out to keep nuls out of your source! :).
