Hi, Daniel Kahn Gillmor reported the following bug against Debian's perl-doc package ( currently, the docs for Math::BigInt contain this example: from_bin() $x = Math::BigInt->from_oct("0x10011"); # input is binary It should probably be: from_bin() $x = Math::BigInt->from_bin("0x10011"); # input is binary (oct -> bin). The typo is also present in version 0.89_01 (shipped by Perl 5.12.0). It would be nice if you could incorporate the fix in a future release. Thanks.
This has been fixed in the perl core, and will be synced to CPAN shortly.
