Subject: Add Perl_clone_params_new()/Perl_clone_params_del()
Download (untitled) / with headers
text/plain 348b
Blead commit f7abe70be985cb9179c2e728a593cb8a5c8e049d by Nicholas Clark added two new functions - Perl_clone_params_new() and Perl_clone_params_del() - and used them in threads.xs. His commit comment states: 'they should be suitable for inclusion into Devel::PPPort'. Until they are added to Devel::PPPort, his change cannot be release to CPAN.

Would you mind creating an initial patch for this? It doesn't have to be perfect, I'm happy to polish it up. The most important part would be a test case that I can use to check backwards compatibility (and preferably also some information on how far back this is intended to be backported).

Can you at least provide a simple test case for those functions?

I don't know how to do this either. Sorry. However, I'm going to lower this to 'wishlist' status. I have put preprocessor conditionals around the subject functions, and have been able to successfully release to CPAN. For technical assistance, perhaps Nick Clark or Dave Mitchell can help.

help. Ok, thanks for letting me know. I just thought you might be more into using these parts of the API and it always takes me ages if I have to come up with good test cases for stuff I've never used before. :) Cheers, Marcus
