Subject: PARI() fails with special scalars

# perl -MMath::Pari=PARI -le 'my $a = "123"; print PARI($a); $a =~ /(\d+)/; print PARI($1);' 123 Variable in sv2pari is not of known type at -e line 1. If PARI() is feed a special variable like $1, it breaks. I think getmagic is missing somewhere. A work around is: # perl -MMath::Pari=PARI -le 'my $a = "123"; print PARI($a); $a =~ /(\d+)/; print PARI($1."");' 123 123 However, that slows everything needlessly down. The bug is critical for Math::BigInt::Pari, since its _new() function gets a scalar and feeds it to PARI() and thus sometimes fails.
