This Week in PSC (087)

  • We briefly discussed conversion from C89 to C99. We think it's not really worth updating old code proactively, but definitely writing new code in modern style. If significant changes are being made within a function it might be worth updating the entire function to C99, but otherwise don't bother doing huge sweeping changes to entire files.
  • We talked about announcing the deprecation of smartmatch. We will work on wording for a new post and send that out soon, outlining our current plans.
  • Paul has a (draft) PR to add pluggable infix operators, but it still needs more additions before it's considered core-worthy

Yes, please. This is what Perl really lacks today.
