Perl on freebsd, starting from 5.8.8, has a merged from 5.8.9 defined-or operator patch. But t/29_alias_dorassign.t test fails on it: prove t/29_alias_dorassign.t t/29_alias_dorassign.t ..

Thanks for the report. The problem is about how Data-Alias can detect, at compile time, whether the defined-or operator exists. Prior to 1.11 it looked for the presence of the pp_dorassign() function, but in Perl 5.13.9 pp_dorassign() got merged into pp_defined() so that test broke. From 1.11 Data-Alias has just looked at the Perl version number, but as you've found that breaks on your mutant 5.8. I don't see any way to reliably detect the existence of an opcode, independent of Perl version number, from within the C preprocessor. Do you have a way? If we can't come up with something clean, I may have to resort to a pre-compilation feature test. -zefram

I think that #ifdef pp_dorassign #define DA_HAVE_OP_DORASSIGN 1 #else #define DA_HAVE_OP_DORASSIGN (PERL_COMBI_VERSION >= 5009000) #endif should do the trick. BTW, 5.8.9 that officially has defined-or operator also seems to be cut off by current check.

That's an option, thanks. Show quoted text

Standard 5.8.9 does not have defined-or. Any 5.8.9 with defined-or is a mutant, just like your 5.8.8. -zefram
Fixed in Data-Alias-1.14, just uploaded to CPAN.
