PSC #136 2024-02-15

  • working out a timeline of what should go in to 5.39.8, 5.39.9, and what to defer to 5.41
  • draft tests+docs received from Martijn Lievaart (“M4”) for a logical xor (^^) operator
  • the responses saying no to adding Data::Printer in core that it doesn’t seem like it would be popular
  • some potential new sprintf format templates:
    • a float template that produces the shortest string that represents the exact float (similar to what Math::Ryu does),
    • a %q to access B::perlstring/quotemeta or something similar
  • the realisation that, some months ago, Mark Gardner had volunteered to work on the SSL-in-core project, and we haven’t heard from them since.
