This document sits aside the perlfaq files as a scratchpad for things
that should change, but for some reason haven't. Please use this
syntax (and leave the committer annotation to subversion):

<severity>perlfaq<number> - <comment>

Severity

! - important change needed soon
? - something that might need work, but not sure
. - change this at some point, but no big deal

& - needs a code change
" - needs a prose change

\ - backwards compatibility change (e.g. for 5.6)
/ - forwards compatibility change (e.g. for 5.10)

# - resolved, but keep in list anyway just in case

- - candidate for deletion
+ - candidate for addition

For example:


Important change to text:

!"perlfaq5 - The question says foo, but should say bar

Is that code right:

?&perlfaq4 - Does that really calculate foo?

Delete this question:

-perlfaq3 - Question "How do I foo?" no longer needed with Perl5

Add this question

+perlfaq1 - Add "Why doesn't anyone ever listen to me?"

=cut

# put some parsing, reporting code here

__END__

?perlfaq3 - Where can I get perl-mode for emacs?
Everyone seems to disagree on what cperl is the right one

?perlfaq5 - How can I translate tildes (~) in a filename?

?perlfaq7 - remove Switch.pm mention

?perlfaq8 - FAQ 8.43 How do I open a file without blocking?
see http://groups.google.com/group/comp.lang.perl.misc/browse_frm/thread/54a2b857dbbb23b1/4d96198cfd1214b0?lnk=st&q=FAQ+8.43+How+do+I+open+a+file+without+blocking%3F&rnum=1#4d96198cfd1214b0

-perlfaq7 - What is variable suicide and how can I prevent it?

!perlfaq9 - How do I remove HTML from a string?
This answer is 15 years old and just plain wrong

+perlfaq4 - How do I traverse nested hashes?
+ - How can I make a deep copy
+ - Unicode stuff

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
