Subject: Magic Error number check reports falsely on non-read $^E and $!
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 687b
Perl::MinimumVersion cantains a _bugfix_magic_errno check that says if the magic variable $^E and $! appear in the same document then the perl verison required is 5.8.3. The _bugfix_magic_errno check seems to refer to the $^E bugfix in perl 5.8.3 which relates to *reading* $^E. The check is overly restrictive in a case such as the following where $^E isn't read: $ cat local ($^E, $!); $ perlver | grep 'Minimum version' | Minimum version of perl : v5.8.3 The $^E variable was added in perl 5.004, so the above snippet should be reported at that version.
