experimental? internal functions with M flag
RJBS writes that he's removing this section from perlexperiment that
talks about functions with an
M flag. This flag denotes that the
function is "experimental" and may change or be removed without
experimental? Sun Studio Compilers for Linux OS
Using Sun Studio Compiler for the Linux OS is marked as experimental. RJBS notes it's more accurate to say that
"We'd like it to work, nobody seems to be smoking it, we don't know whether it works." We treat it like any other platform.
perlopentut branch for review
In February, Tom Christiansen sent in a perlopentut rewrite which RJBS added to a branch for review.
